Gender and Sexual Identity Expectations in Dance and Their Effects on LGBTQIA+ Dancers
As we train dancers, how often do we stop to think about the gender and sexual identity roles we are promoting? Are we acknowledging the individual or are we reinforcing stereotypes? Are we creating a space of safety or one of exclusion?
Michael Montoya, a transgender dancer, choreographer, and educator, shares the stories of LGBTQIA+ dancers as they candidly discuss their experiences with the often-rigid gender and sexual identity expectations in the world of dance.
1 hour documentary and Q&A after.
