HOPE MOHR Shifting Cultural Power: Case Studies and Questions in Performance is a reckoning with white cultural power and a call to ac- tion. The book locates the work of curating performance in conversations about social change, with a special focus on advancing racial equity in the live arts. Based on the author’s journey as a dancer, choreographer, and activist, as well as on her ten years of leading The Bridge Project, a performing arts presenting platform in the Bay Area, Shifting Cultural Power invites us to imagine new models of relationship among artists and within arts organizations—models that transform our approach, rather than simply re-cast who holds power. Published by The National Center for Choreography and the University of Akron Press. DANCE-A-VISION Dance-A-Vision Entertainment recently moved to their new home at Westfield San Francisco Centre! Under the Beautiful His- toric Dome, Carla Service will continue to cultivate dancers by providing instruction in hip hop, jazz, African, contemporary, and more.
