Every dancer will benefit immensely from JTE. The course’s engagement with the dance’s relationships with culture, history, and politics (of ALL sorts!) will make one a better and more nuanced dancer as well as human being/world citizen. Of all the workshops, intensives, festivals, and events out there, without a doubt, JTE should be at the top of dancers’ priority lists. There is nothing comparable. Nothing changed my dance, or my life, like Sahra’s Journey Through Egypt.
