Black Enterprise Magazine Recognizes DC Choreographer
June, 1 2016
Black Enterprise Magazine featured Dissonance Dance Theatre founder Shawn Short in its 2016 BE Modern Man, which highlights 100 African-American men, nationwide, who have attained success in their particular fields as well as impacted their communities.
In the interview, Short discussed his passion for dance and overcoming the daily obstacles of being African-American and rearing both a dance company and an educational institute in a city that is the epicenter of all things politics--a city which racial make-up has dramatically changed in the last decade, largely due to gentrification.
Small But Mighty: Dissonance Dance Theatre is named one of 11 small-but-mighty companies outside of NYC and LA
