Contemporary Dance with Lenora Lee
From the age of four, Lenora Lee loved how dance allowed her to communicate the way she felt and to share experiences with others. Born and raised in San Francisco, Lee, now a dancer, choreographer, and artistic director of Lenora Lee Dance, combines elements such as dance, video, martial arts, music and text to create work that connects movement with cultural and human rights issues. Come with KQED Art School as we learn more about Lee and her dancers as they rehearse for a series of performances at Asia Society in New York City. In the second video, gain a deeper perspective of her work as Lee demonstrates her choreography from her performance The Escape.
