Our Purpose

The Glitter Goddess Collective is a community of artists, performers, educators, therapists, and healers dedicated to exploring the intersections of learning, play, liberation and social / emotional / spiritual growth. Through interactive workshops, facilitated retreats, and reflective pedagogy, we pursue our vision of a world in which all people are empowered to express themselves and to cultivate wonder. We believe that systems of oppression fundamentally depend on people forgetting that creativity is our natural state of being. Together, we practice getting closer to an experience of flow that precedes ego and social markers so that we can explore from a place of deeper liberation within ourselves. We practice transformation through play.//The Haus of Glitter Dance Company is a partnership between the Glitter Goddess Art Collective and the TAPA Dance Company, based in Providence, RI. At the intersection of dance, social practice, public spectacle, flash mobs, immersive interdisciplinary performance, and performance art, The House of Glitter primarily performs Contemporary, West-African/Afrobeats/Afro-House, Vogue, Breakdance, Hip Hop, and Theatrical forms of movement such as puppetry, drag, mask, and glitter-tastic costuming. We are working, through movement, to shift the energetic center of the universe towards Queer Feminist PoC Liberation.
