J Michael Winward is an independent dance artist based in Boston. With influences in American-style ballroom, ballet, contemporary and somatic dance practices, his work places a strong focus on building connection: connection to one’s body, one’s self, one’s audience, connection between dance partners, connection within and across communities. Through his program Steps in Time, Michael brings social ballroom dancing to senior, elder, and memory care communities throughout Greater Boston. Along with Maggie Cee, he co-produces Dancing Queerly, a month-long queer dance festival of workshops, mixers, panel discussions, and performances. Dancing with Peter DiMuro/Public Displays of Motion (PDM), he works to advance the PDM mission of cultivating dance/arts literacy, advocacy and engagement. jmichaelwinward.com
