31st Annual Dunham Technique Seminar


Katherine Dunham is probably best known as a legendary dancer who propelled the awareness of the cultures of the African Diaspora via her choreography.

Her famous dance technique reflects a fusion of many cultures.

Miss. Dunham was a true renaissance woman. She was an artist, anthropologist, author, activist, manager, movie star, producer, educator, wife, mother and so much more.

The mission of the Dunham Technique Seminar is to provide training and development in Dunham Technique.  Its major goal is to provide opportunities for artists from around the world to come together annually for educational, artistic and performance experiences.

The Katherine Dunham Centers for Arts and Humanities is committed to forwarding the dynamic legacy of the Dunham Technique by providing opportunities for artists from all over the world to be enriched through exposure to dance masters in a conference environment in the Metropolitan St. Louis/East St. Louis communities.  Through the provision of an annual conference, artists learn to perfect techniques and skills in a variety of dance idioms and to receive specialized training in Dunham Technique.

The Annual Dunham Technique Seminar will be held at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri.
