The Dance Union Podcast

The Dance Union Podcast captures timely and ephemeral conversations circulating within dance communities. It supports transparent discourse about a variety of topics including pay inequality, sexual harassment, abuse of power, and tokenism. The Dance Union podcast was born from the need to unify and amplify marginalized voices within the United States dance communities.


A unique component of the podcast is that hosts J. Bouey and Melanie Greene, both Black artists, center Black and marginalized experiences through culturally specific considerations, and first person advocacy. Guests are invited each week to share their experiences, and in addition to clever incorporation of movement into a digital medium, episodes offer a segment called History for the Future, a main topic of discussion, and statements envisioning a truly realized Dance Union.
