Kittie Mae Morris
CAF awarded performer, educator, and artist Kittie Mae Morris a grant for Dancing Dolphin, a contemporary dance piece that aims to raise awareness on how endangered dolphins are in the wild. Kittie Mae’s project emphasizes the fact that the livelihoods and fate of humans and the existence and cultures of dolphins are intertwined as the ocean’s health deteriorates through pollution and climate change. Dancing Dolphin hopes to encourage more conversation on interspecies relations, and enable our mutual embodiedness to encourage a better understanding in us of all species. Kittie Mae holds a BFA in Dance Performance, and teaches creative movement, ballet, hip-hop, modern, contemporary, musical theatre, jazz, and tap. Her dance credits include performing with Praize Productions and Chicago Dance Supply. Kittie Mae lives in Washington, D.C.
