Do You Wonder How People Curve, Flip, Or Groove? What Makes Boys and Girls Dance? How Do It Make Them Feel? Happy? Sad? Relieved? How Will Ever Know Unless We Listen To Their Steps As They Move. I Feel It’s Natural To Connect To A Song And To Have A Certain Movement To The Rhythm. As The Black Culture Develops It’s More A Purpose To The Dances Created In Today’s Society. To Stop The Violence And Advocate For More Black Projects. Go Dance!
All images and words are selected and created by the artist.
TRACE (Teens Reimagining Art, Community, & Environment) is a Chicago Park District-based program that develops young Creative Activists who seek to understand and exercise their abilities and shared responsibility to advocate for and create change within their local and wider communities. We do this by using art processes to engage in dialogue, bride-building, and problem-solving.
