Details

Intergenerational dance allows people of different ages and backgrounds to come together to express and connect in meaningful and authentic ways. The lively and fun workshop took participants through movement play in a guided, safe and joyful way that celebrated everyone's abilities and unique ways of moving. The workshop was led by Expressive Arts Facilitator Catherine Corral and a team of transcenDANCE Teen Performers.

Catherine Corral co-founded the community arts nonprofit organization, transcenDANCE, in 2005 to combine dance theatre and performance with community building, youth leadership and social change in San Diego. Corral has served as executive/artistic director and to date has co-directed 10 of transcenDANCE’S original productions. In 2010, she was named one of the top 35 under 35 Community Leaders of San Diego by the San Diego News Network. Corral is inspired by her collective experiences in movement education and healing practices, and has integrated mindfulness practices into the transcenDANCE curriculum. 

ranscenDANCE Youth Arts Project empowers youth to mobilize social change through dance and performance in under-served San Diego communities. It was founded in 2005 and is a pioneering creative youth development organization, with headquarters in National City at the campus of ARTS: A Reason to Survive. transcenDANCE runs programs year-round both in schools and in after-school programs. transcenDANCE youth go through intensive technical dance theatre training and personal exploration by way of leadership development, community-building activities and service projects — with the ultimate goal of creating dynamic performances that synthesize their artistic strengths while addressing complex social issues that impact their community.
