2008 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Martina will instruct a form of line dancing-coined "Linedancersize" which is line dancing and exercising combined. Linedancersize is a group dance designed for inter-generational programs, all cultures, male and female. Martina's project will be instructing a 10-week all male soul line dance workshop offered free of charge held at Hawthorne Recreation Center at 12th and Carpenter every Wednesday from 6:15 PM to 7:45 PM. This project is an opportunity to recruit males who are interested in learning line dance routines to various genres of music, ultimately interacting with the line dance community.The purpose of this workshop is to engage and encourage men to become a part of a newfound venture that women are currently involved with in order to overcome social gender barriers.
