Dimensional Dance provides the dancers, choreography, music, and costumes and pre-performance guide.
The schools provide busing to the show and chaperones to the show.
I can appreciate how dance tells a story. I can understand who Prudence Crandall and Sarah Harris were and their significance in education for black students in the United States not just Connecticut. I can understand that the history of Connecticut education was filled with racial inequities and injustice.
Dimensional Dance performs the story of Prudence Crandall and Sarah Harris: Whole Souled Women. This project, set in the 1830s, is an original ballet about Connecticut educator Prudence Crandall and Sarah Harris, one of her first students.
These brave women fought racial discrimination and were social justice advocates ahead of their time. The ballet tells their journey starting from when Crandall accepts Harris into her school to when the state of Connecticut gives Prudence Crandall restitution at the end of her life while living in poverty in Kansas.
Volunteering in the form of chaperoning is necessary and greatly appreciated for the bus ride and performance.
