Workshops & Classes

Through workshops, lecture series and forums, The Shades Initiative endeavors to (a) provide opportunities for students to learn, feel empowered and have fun (b) share the knowledge and expertise its team and partners have with regards to the tools and methods they utilize to celebrate and address issues related to community, diversity, identity and inclusion.

These workshops include dance classes, spoken word workshops, event coordination, community engagement classes and more and are taught by some of the active and renowned dancers, poets, event/community engagement specialists, and activists in the region.
