*Dance/Movement in Conversation with Fine Arts
D.M.F.A. is an undergraduate/graduate student organization facilitating monthly workshops and discussions hosted by Baltimore artists, MICA faculty, and students. Contemporary art is about creating an art experience. Dance, movement practices, and body awareness is increasingly more important to the practice of art. This organization is for the activation of undergraduate and graduate students as creative peers, dialogue about the body as it relates to art making and presentation. This organization helps sustain connections to the Baltimore arts community, a tenant of MICA education. Students, faculty, and staff of all disciplines are welcome.
