Alice Sheppard is a dancer, choreographer, speaker and member of the National Advisory Board for Urban Bush Women. Her pioneering practice exists at the intersections of race, gender and disability.

“The intersections of these three form a crucible of interpretative potential. I look into the art and aesthetics that shape our understandings of human difference and make work that I hope will be part of a new, more nuanced conversation.”

Read more about her work in “A New Invitation to Dance” published in the New York Times.

Disability is more than the deficit of diagnosis. It is an aesthetic, a series of intersecting cultures, and a creative force.
