Lela Aisha Jones is a movement performance artist that intertwines personal history, diasporic movement, and social commentary. The foundation of her work is the individual and collective lived experiences of blackness as archived in and excavated from the body through dance. As the founder of her creative home FlyGround she directs her own artistic projects, the Dancing for Justice Philadelphia Initiative, and The Requisite Movers Program and Performances. Lela is a 2016 Pew Fellow and also a member of the inaugural 2015 Innovative Cultural Advocacy Fellowship program.
