In February 2020, the MJDC will launch our newest program, Encounters Over 60, focused on amplifying the visibility of women artists over 60. In a medium so often focused on the young and upcoming, there is a deep need for the voices of diverse, elder female artists to be highlighted and celebrated, and to create connections across generations of artists.
Artists Vicky Shick (Budapest/New York) and Merián Soto (Puerto Rico/ Philadelphia) will perform their solo work as well as new work developed with local dancers, and share their rich body of artistry and experiences through in-depth classes and workshops for both the pro
fessional dancer and those who simply enjoy moving with like-minded curious adults. All Encounters Over 60 activities are pay what you want, and no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
