World-renowned tap dancer, Ayodele Casel, shares her thoughts on mentoring, remembering the women who carved a path for her, and amplifying women's voices. Learn more about her perspective as we discuss:
"One of The New York Times' "Biggest Breakout Stars of 2019", Ayodele Casel, “a tap dancer of fine-grained musicianship” (The New Yorker), was a 2019-2020 fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University. Hailed by the legendary hoofer Gregory Hines as “one of the top young tap dancers in the world”, she is an internationally sought-after artist and a powerful voice for the art form. Born in The Bronx and raised in Puerto Rico, Ayodele began her professional training at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. Her origins in theater and love for storytelling and tap dance have significantly contributed to the narrative nature in her work, which is rooted in the expression of identity, culture, language, and communication.”
