Blake Worthey is a Black American, dance-theater and teaching artist from Memphis, Tennessee. Currently, he is interested in how the dialectical technologies inherent in creative spaces can inform the building of a more equitable world outside of our artistic lives. His training includes a BFA in dance performance (University of Arkansas-Little Rock), Modus Operandi (Vancouver,BC), Orsalina 28 (Italy) and imitating various dance and kung fu movies circa 2004.
