Wayles Haynes, Lead Artist and Adjunct Artist with the Dance Exchange
Youth Arts Night at the Dance Exchange.
Teen Exchange hosted Youth artists at Dance Exchange to perform dance, song and poetry.
I have been working closely with Teen Exchange as a mentor / facilitator this year.
Teens from Teen Exchange performed their own original choreography, and they also organized the event and invited the group's who performed.

In this gallery are photographs taken during the development days for a field trip Anne Kotleba and I collaborated with Dance Exchange on. Anne and I have been partnering at Dr. Rayner Browne Academy Elementary and Middle since November.
I am an AmeriCorps Member with the Liz Lerman Dance Exchange, so we've had this opportunity to work together with the Company to develop the first in a series of nature walks that will be using Dance and Scientific observation to connect urban youth to the natural environment.
We worked with the YMCA of Central Maryland and with Greg Branch who is a community partner at Dr. Rayner Browne Academy Elementary and Middle.
For our field trip we after school sessions at Patterson Park* with Y program staff and dancers / naturalists (with The National Forest Service) with DC-based Liz Lerman Dance Exchange and educators form University of Baltimore. We explored and connect to the natural environment through movement and art-making.
In the month of December I installed a show of MACA art at Dance Exchange. John Borstel, the Humanities Director, invited us to share the work of our group to highlight the MACA/LLDE partnership and celebrate/show what we make. I coordinated collecting, transporting, and installment of my classmates work as part of their open house on December 13th, 7:00-9:00.
