SUAREZ DANCE THEATER
Dance for Veterans Community Dance Day 10:15-11:30am PST
With funding from Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs & the California Arts Council, we are hosting a free, public, & virtual Dance for Veterans class. Join us to breathe, dance, create & meet some of the veterans and clinicians involved in this program. All abilities and ages welcome.
Dancing in my Bedroom with Veterans
Dance for Veterans co-creator Christine Suarez reflects on her experiences teaching veterans during the pandemic.
Each week we will release a short film that amplifies Black, Indigenous and Latinx voices and histories of Santa Monica. Each film will be accompanied by resources for further research and exploration. Suarez Dance Theater is honored to be working with these artists creating in collaboration with film maker Leonardo Rivas: choreographer/performer: Bernard Brown/ bbmoves, poet/songwriter: Jessa Calderon and Primera Generación Dance Collective's Alfonso Cervera, Rosa Rodriguez-Frazier, Irvin Manuel Gonzalez and Patricia "Patty" Huerta.

SuarezDanceTheater is a Los Angeles-based not-for-profit ensemble that stimulates social change through dance-making and creative practices. By asking what is dance, where we dance, and why we dance, the company ignites conversations and illuminates collective unspoken stories to build community.
