Sydnie L. Mosley Dances (SLMDances) is a New York City-based dance-theater collective that works in communities to organize for gender and racial justice through experiential dance performance. SLMDances’ works engage audiences in the artistic process; the dances provoke a visceral reaction to the physicality on stage and incite conversation toward community action. The collective creates and presents dance uptown and focuses community-based initiatives within Harlem and Black and brown communities on the Upper West Side. SLMDances’ collective organizational practice was featured in the New York Times, “Dance’s Communal Ethos is Moving Into the Office and Boardroom.” Notable recent funders include: Mellon, Howard Gilman, MAP Fund, NEFA National Theater Project Finalist, New York Community Trust, Foundation for Contemporary Arts, Dance/NYC, Mertz Gilmore.
Led by Sydnie L. Mosley, an award winning artist-activist and educator, her evening length dances The Window Sex Project and BodyBusiness, their creative processes and performance experiences are a model for dance-activism.
