J Michael WINWARD
Thanks for stopping by!
My name is Michael Winward (he/him). I’m an interdisciplinary artist: dancer, storyteller, and organizer. My solo performances blend movement, memoir and (sometimes) video projection of my family's home movies. Through Steps in Time, I bring ballroom dance programming to elder care and mind care communities in and around so-called Greater Boston. I co-organize Dancing Queerly: a platform that hosts performances, discussions, and workshops by and for LGBTQ2SIA+ community, friends, and allies. I have a B.A. in Liberal Arts from Bennington College, and I’m currently a candidate in the MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts program at Goddard College.
I was born and raised (Wamesit), and presently reside (Totant) - a guest on land of the Massachusett, Nipmuc, and Wampanoag tribes - the original stewards of territory currently known as Massachusetts.
