Our world feels like it is reeling. The convergence of a global pandemic, economic crisis and the long overdue impassioned reckoning with racial injustice can render artists feeling paralyzed and insignificant.  However, history is filled with exemplars of artists who have continued to work during dire circumstances.  As the late great Toni Morrison said, “There is no time for despair, no place for self-pity, no need for silence, no room for fear. We speak, we write, we do language. That is how civilizations heal.”  And so, we dance!  Call to Action features dances created in response to these challenges by faculty choreographers Sarah Hauss, Giselle Mejia, Jill Patterson, Melissa Rolnick and Michele Rusinko, and selected work from student and alumni choreographers.
