focused on the contemporary artistic expression of Latina
experience and culture, will conduct two public presentations
during the group's weeklong residence at Texas Woman's
A lecture/demonstration scheduled Wednesday, April 16, will

artist/scholar with performances of original choreography by
members of the group. The event will take place from 11 a.m.
until 12:30 p.m. in Studio 210 of the DGL Building, located at
the northeast corner of Bell Avenue and Administration Drive.
The lecture/demonstration will be followed from 4 to 6 p.m. by
a studio performance of Embodying Borders, featuring four solo
dances created by the group's members, in Studio 328 of Pioneer
Hall, located on Bell Avenue.
Both events are free and open to the public.
The Latina Dance Project is comprised of TWU doctoral student
Juanita Suarez, TWU alum Eluza Santos, and Licia Perea and Eva
Tessler. The group will be in residence in TWU's Department of
Dance from Monday, April 14 to Thursday, April 17.
The members will teach classes in modern dance technique,
