Students Explore Dance Through Artist-In-Residency

Posted on December 28th, 2020 at 7:40 PM



Students in the Elizabeth Lee Black School were all set to begin an Artist-In-Residency with artist Alethea “Miss Le” Bodine when statewide restrictions closed schools in March 2020.  Miss Le, founder of Chromatic Dance, was ready to bring her unique form of dance and movement.

But the pandemic could not stop the residency as Miss Le joined school faculty to continue providing classes remotely – first in the classrooms, and then even in the homes of students.

See how students learned to experience this amazing art form and express themselves through dance and movement.

The Artist-in-Residence is funded through grants from Erie Arts and Culture, Very Special Arts at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and the Dr. Gertrude A. Barber Foundation.
