Joan Green, Teaching Artist

In this interview with dancer Joan Green, she talks about how she began teaching dance to  young children. She later became fascinated by the work of choreographer Liz Lerman when she first began teaching dance to elders and included older dancers in her choreography. Joan took a workshop with her and was inspired to create a diverse inter-generational, inter-racial group ​of 15 women from age 12 to age 68 (including 5 professional dancers) for a three month dance and oral history workshop series. Joan shares how this work has helped her to make a difference.
