Fire in the Sky is a performance event produced by Urban Movement Arts (UMA) community members Queenz Collective (Sanchel Brown & Caitlin Green), Haylee Warner & collaborators, and Kayla Bobalek & Maddie Hopfield.
UMA is producing Fire in the Sky as part of its expanded Artists in Residency (AIR) programs, directed by Lily Kind. The AIR program supports creators of experimental dance, theater, and performance who walk with Afro diasporic and American folk dance traditions. UMA welcomes adults of all ages and experience levels to learn American folk dance and African Diaspora movement genres such as Hip Hop, Jazz, Breaking, Waacking, and House. UMA serves as the downtown hot spot for professional dancers in under-represented forms to practice, cipher, and build.
