Eliza Malecki - Izizwe Dance Studio Artist in Residence

Eliza Malecki- Izizwe Dance Studio Artist in Residence 


Izizwe Dance Studio is proud to be part of the Lawrence Arts Collective, a group of nonprofits, businesses, and artists supporting arts initiatives in Lawrence, MA. The 7 arts organizations within this collective are committed to supporting the creation, facilitation, and documentation of community arts and culture projects within the city of Lawrence. LAC is funded by the TDI Creative Catalyst Grant Program administered by Massdevelopment. 

Izizwe continues to expand its mission of developing and maintaining a thriving dance community within the city of Lawrence. By providing the tools needed for dancers and choreographers to create and showcase their work we are paving the way for Lawrence to become a hot spot for dance performance, creation, and education. Through this mission Izizwe Dance Collective was born!

 Our first artist in residence is Eliza Malecki. Eliza is a passionate dancer, choreographer, and arts administrator based out of Boston. Her choreographic site specific work will utilize the unique landscapes and vibrant community found within each partner organization and the city as a whole.

Lawrence Arts Collective has given Eliza and Izizwe Dance Studio an opportunity to create new work through Izizwe Dance Collective!
