Judy Dworin’s commitment to education has had an extended history at Trinity College, where she founded the Dance Program, co-founded the Trinity/La MaMa Performing Arts Semester in New York City, and chaired the Department of Theater and Dance for many years. Judy’s work in performance and teaching is informed by her belief in the wisdom of the body and its spontaneous and creative expression as a foundational element to our growth and development. She focuses her work on interarts collaborative performance and residency outreaches to underserved populations.
Judy founded the Judy Dworin Performance Project, Inc. (JDPP, Inc.) in 1989 based on her belief in the important role the arts play in challenging and creating change in our universe—personal, educational, and global. Through her artistic vision, the Project provides cutting-edge performance that addresses issues of social justice through the Ensemble; a ground-breaking educational residency program of long standing, Moving Matters!, that supports a collaborative residency with Trinity at Parkville Community School; and Bridging Boundaries--a program that reaches out to those affected by incarceration including women in prison, reentering the community, children with parents in prison and mothers in prison and their children.
