UBW Mission: Founded in 1984 by choreographer Jawole Willa Jo Zollar, Urban Bush Women (UBW) seeks to
bring the untold and under-told stories to light through dance. We do this from a woman-centered perspective and as members of the African Diaspora community in order to create a more equitable balance
of power in the dance world and beyond, under the artistic direction of Chanon Judson and Samantha Speis. We do this by facilitating the use of art as a means of addressing issues of social justice and encouraging civic engagement. Based in Brooklyn, we aspire to ensure continuity by strengthening and expanding our international community via ongoing professional education, development of new audiences, nurturing
young talent, and presenting bold, life-affirming dance works in a variety of settings including at our annual Summer Leadership Institute.
