Dance Professor Emerita Secures Grant to Bring Urban Bush Women to Brockport
Urban Bush Women seeks to bring untold and under-told stories to light through dance from a woman-centered perspective. It is a sought after dance group and Davis was able to secure a residency for Brockport with funds from the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation and other funding sources. In addition to the performances by Urban Bush women held at the campus, they also conducted a post-show discussion and taught four classes to students in the Department of Dance. Urban Bush Women, as part of this agreement, will provide additional activities in Buffalo, NY, with dates to be announced.
The grant will be administered by The Research Foundation for SUNY at SUNY Brockport.
