UNDER|STAND is a public dialogue on racism hosted by Dana Caspersen, conflict mediator and choreographer, and the SC Department of Dance. **There is no dancing or dance experience required or expected.**
The event is a social action that brings people together to engage in physical and spoken conversations about race. It is a physical engagement model in which participants take part in several action modes of exchange in small and large groups. By coming together to share experience, to learn and listen, and to ask questions, we engage on one of the most difficult and important issues we face as humans living in the world today. This project is intended as a spark to support a safe space to connect and hopefully, in some small way to under | stand.
