Dance Company

RootsUprising is a dance artist collective of intergenerational dancers representing diverse identities. Performing primarily in educational venues, the company’s work reflects the intersection of dance, music, spoken word and digital technology creating multimodal storytelling through dance experiences. RootUprising was founded in 1998 by artistic director Nailah Randall-Bellinger, while completing her Masters Degree in Interdisciplinary studies at Lesley University, Cambridge, Massachusetts. Randall-Bellinger’s Master’s thesis, Dancing Beloved, which used dance as text, and text as dance became the foundation of the company.
