Coming to Monuments Program

Dance Matters Coming to Monuments Program

Dance Matters is a contemporary dance theater company with a commitment to cross-disciplinary performances that engage, educate and inspire audiences of all ages. Integral to the company’s mission is to create work that addresses K-12 curriculum standards, tailored for dance integrated residencies and school performances.

The Coming to Monuments program to be performed at St. John’s High School blends dance, theater and poetry to enhance social studies of the period from Reconstruction through the Civil Rights movement. A dance and poetry integrated residency taught by Dance Matters company members and Charleston’s poet laureate Marcus Amaker will augment the performance.
