About Dancing Stories Workshops

These workshops allow people to move, learn and have fun while exploring the oral tradition through dance. Students interpret stories through self-created choreography and group dance collaboration.

About Maura Garcia Dance

Maura Garcia Dance offers performances featuring choreographic works of Artistic Director Maura García and collaborating artists. García (non-enrolled Cherokee/Mattamuskeet) founded MGD to uplift Indigenous cultural values, to form connections and to explore the rhythms of the natural world. From compelling solos to community-integrating ensemble shows, MGD provides deeply engaging performances for the stage, the out-of-doors and in response to specific places and events.

García is dedicated to collaborating within communities to create stories of identity and place. Accordingly, MGD facilitates long-term collaborative arts projects exploring narratives and history through dance and other art forms. MGD also provides workshops, residencies and artists talks for both adults and children.
