Dance For Democracy

How To Dance To The Preamble Of The United States Constitution
The endless election season is enough to turn anyone cynical about politics. But for a group of female South Dade migrant workers, the idea of democracy is still a wonder.
They've been exploring it at a dance workshop sponsored by Miami-Dade College and the South Miami Dade Cultural Arts Center. It’s part of the “Are We Democracy” workshop in Cutler Bay. The program was created by the New York dance troupe Urban Bush Women. The idea is to make democracy personal and concrete for everyone.
Miami Herald arts reporter Jordan Levin visited a rehearsal to find out what "We the People" means to this group of women.
