The partnership between VCU, the non-profit Dance Exchange, and members of the public culminates this weekend with the performance Still Crossing. This collaboration examines how dance can be used to create community and foster dialogue.

“Right now a lot of transitions are in place between ourselves individually, as a community, in our own state, in our country and as a world and Still Crossing is about making those bridges and not building walls to cover them.” – Marsell Chavarria, current dance student
