In this video, Jawole Willa Jo Zollar, choreographer and founding artistic director of Urban Bush Women, discusses her experience as a choreographer and the value of embracing risk throughout her practice. “Risk exists on the edge of failure…so if you’re not right on that edge of failure…you’re not in a place of risk. Living on that edge and learning from that edge to me is a really exciting place,” she says.

The power and benefits of dance are endless for all areas of life. Football player Alvin Hill suffered from a knee injury and was recommended to take yoga classes to help him recover. Soon afterwards, the yoga teacher, Collette Krogol convinced him to sign up for her ballet class at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center at the University of Maryland.
“‘It helps him in understanding himself and being responsible for himself and how he’s executing the movement,’ Krogol said. ‘But also recognizing that there’s all these other people moving around him, and how does he navigate the space to be able to move through the vocabulary that I’m asking him to.'”

“A line of around 200 colorful “Hairspray” hopefuls wrapped around the Hippodrome Theatre on Thursday morning, each waiting for a chance to be a part of a live televised production of the Broadway musical based on the 1988 John Waters film.
NBC was hosting auditions for “Hairspray Live,” offering one Baltimore-area resident a trip to Los Angeles and a dancing role in the show about a chubby Baltimore girl with hep moves — and a TV dance show in need of desegregation. Baltimore is the only city where the auditions will be held, according to an NBC spokeswoman, which gives local talent the opportunity to be a part of a production that is closely identified with the city.
The broadcast will air Dec. 7, with a cast including Jennifer Hudson, Harvey Fierstein, Kristin Chenoweth, Martin Short, Sean Hayes, Rosie O’Donnell, Ariana Grande and Andrea Martin.
Would-be stars were queuing up for the auditions by 6 a.m…” (Brittany Britto).
