The Essential Work of Anti-Racism

a 3-session online committed group
August 22, August 29, and September 5
9am - 12 noon (Pacific time)

Many of us wonder if our nation’s resolve to end racism will endure. At Open Floor Dance we are committed to educating ourselves about social justice and keeping this courageous conversation in process. We recognize that we have deeper personal and professional work to do in order to recognize our own unconscious, ancestral, embodied racism. We must begin here in order to be useful in the long haul.

To this end, we are hosting a 3-part, committed series on anti-racism led by the father-daughter team of André and Katie Salvage.

Please note: The group is limited to 60 people. As we meet, we will build awareness, intimacy, and vulnerability together.

André and his team facilitate personal and professional development trainings, and are leaders in the field of anti-racism and social justice. As a dancer and martial arts master, André brings a deeply embodied perspective to his teaching. Katie teaches assertiveness training, anti--bullying, assault prevention and social and emotional intelligence in schools across the country. She is also a gifted guide in the power of storytelling.


Our Call to Work:

  • Bring fuller awareness to our own internal biases

  • Learn the skills to move with discomfort, while staying present and curious in the face of strong emotions

  • Understand the breadth and depth of embedded, systemic racism

  • Have the ability to speak our own stories, and hear others' stories of pain and privilege

  • Join hands as a global community to lessen the damage that racism causes
