About The LEIMAY Fellowship:
The LEIMAY Fellowship provides an arena for artistic exploration, resource sharing and professional development to a local community of dancers, choreographers, interdisciplinary artists, and body-workers who seek a space to create and share their work in a supportive environment of fellow artists.

About the Artists:

Joy Douglas is a Brooklyn based choreographer who hails from Flint, MI. In the Fall of 2017, they established Douglas & Co. We are a company that strives to combine: creativity, athleticism, artistry, intelligence, musicality, passion and grit to create original works of dance while focusing on the advancement of technique, autonomy, and expression. Her work has been performed at the NYSDEA’s winter conference at Hunter College, Gibney’s “I <3 GDC”, the Northeastern Conference of the American College Dance Association at Montclair State University and White Wave’s Dumbo Dance Festival. www.douglasandco8.com
