About three years ago, Sarah Young, Earthdance’s Executive Director, and I created Earthdance Diversity Scholarship, which awarded scholarships to members of under-represented groups to attend the Earthdance’s Falling Leaves Jam. So far, despite some bumps, I think we can call the program a success, awarding 13 scholarships over 3 years and further diversifying Earthdance and contact improvisation.
We’re looking for some more people to help out and bring some fresh faces & ideas in continuing this work. If you’re interested in participating or know someone who might be, you can get more details on involvement at http://www.earthdance.net/diversityscholarship.
If you’re interested in getting involved, you can fill out this form, which is also linked to from the page above.
Please spread the word and consider joining us.
