                  Women's Works Mission Statement
Women’s Works focuses on the female experience and the lens from which we witness and view the world. This offering is done in a way that is not limiting, but broadens our understanding of the multiple perspectives within the identity of "woman.” We represent artists from a range of age, dance and aesthetic backgrounds. the work is not driven by the desires of a pervasive media driven definition of dance, but rather on the honest expression that occurs when our stories unfold with support & integrity. this fosters dialogue between community members through art. Our goal is to support the creative mind, heart and body of all beings.
