“I’m most proud of the work that I have done in prisons where I get diverse populations. So, when the opportunity came to me to do a dance class for seniors, that resonated with me as well, because I felt like many times people write seniors off. They feel that, ‘Oh, they’re old, they have challenges.’ But I believe there are ways that you can tailor the teaching to fit them, because any movement will benefit the body.”
The Louisiana State Museum hosted an online, six-week creative aging workshop for older audiences in conjunction with Mystery in Motion: African American Masking and Spirituality in Mardi Gras. The exhibit honors Black masking Indians, also known as Mardi Gras Indians, and celebrated their sartorial creations.
