Dance Canvas/Atlanta Contemporary Summer Residency

From July - Aug. 2023, Dance Canvas and Atlanta Contemporary embarked on the 4th year of the Summer Choreographic Residency. Both organizations are strong believers in the power of art and the strength of artists’ voices to heal, make commentary, lift spirits, inspire hope, and demand change.
