The Move: Santee Smith

Synopsis

Can you dance after breaking your legs? For Santee Smith, ballet was a form of rehabilitation. But she had to unlearn her classical technique to reclaim her traditional ways. Santee demonstrates the woman’s shuffle, which celebrates women as sustainers while illustrating the earth’s creation story.
