Lindsay Morris

Lindsay graduated from the BA Honours program in International Development at the University of Guelph in 2012 and is excited to begin her joint MA in Dance and MBA in Arts Administration this Fall. Lindsay started dancing when she was four and has been supporting social justice causes since the age of 7, but has only recently discovered the ways in which these two passions can be combined. In 2011, Lindsay choreographed and helped to stage the first interracial performance in Maun, Botswana, and she just returned from an internship with the Sankofa Center in Accra, Ghana, which uses traditional dance as an educational method for HIV/AIDS prevention. Lindsay’s research will focus on dance as a tool for development, and its possible use as a method of reintegrating demobilized child soldiers back into their communities.
