2015 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Through the documentation and instruction of Bop, Cha Cha, and Line Dance classes, Melissa’s Let’s Dance project will explore the history of social dancing with intergenerational audiences. An eight-week series at the Free Library of Philadelphia, Greater Olney Branch, Let’s Dance will provide an opportunity for participants to share their own traditional dances, visit other dance classes around the city, and record interviews which will be used to preserve the history and culture of these dances. The cross-cultural dance project will conclude with a community performance.
