Monique I. Jones led an African World Dance Lecture Demonstration in Kimball Ballroom during the lunch hour, allowing world dance students to showcase various healing movements they’ve learned in class.
Jones is a guest artist instructor for world dance this semester.
A Kansas City native, Jones is currently director of operations at Missouri Contemporary Ballet.
During the demonstration, students imitated various African animals, including elephants and birds; mimicked traditional gathering and weaving movements; and used colors to represent elements such as fire and air.
Among audience members were students from The Children’s School at Stephens College.
