Dance: Arts Education, Performance, Music
Yaasha Abraham is a professional dancer, singer, and teaching artist that specializes in the traditional/folkloric dances of Brazil and Ethiopia. She has traveled the country and the world as a dancer, vocalist, and teaching artist, but is most dedicated to her work in Chicago’s inner city. Yaasha hopes to expand her efforts to IMAN and strives to create art and experiences that are spiritually rooted, spatially relevant, and socially conscious. She ultimately wants to show that within the arts lies the potential to empower, educate, and liberate.
