UpRooted Dance is looking for 8-10 DMV community members to be a part of “The Ascension Project”
at Joe’s Movement Emporium.

This will be a volunteer opportunity giving dancers and non-dancers the chance to be involved in a creative dance rehearsal and performance process. UpRooted Dance is looking for open minded participants to explore their identity in the context of being “An American” and a “Global Citizen.” We will explore our identities through collaborative movement scores. No dance experience is needed.

UpRooted Dance’s “Ascension Project” set to Sufjan Steven’s Ascension Album, is an indie-rock dance opera offering audiences the chance to reflect on the events of the past two years and the world we now live in through the lens of dance, music, and art. Exploring ’20/20′ vision,the “Ascension Project” will take audiences through an emotional trajectory through space and time. The work explores isolation, anxiety, disability, trauma and loss, and finally ends with transcendence.
