Isaiah L. Harris is an African-American dancer with a background in West African diasporic dance, ballet, modern, and hip-hop. Isaiah holds a BFA in Dance from The College at Brockport, SUNY, and is currently pursuing an MFA in Dance at The Ohio State University. His current research investigates social dance as medicine and its ability to combat type-2 diabetes, hypertension, and stroke. Isaiah’s goal is to figure out how West African, Caribbean, and Black social dance can be factors to prevent these diseases in the Black community. Lastly, he is interested in the dancing spirit and how it manifests itself in the black body, using West African, Caribbean, Black social dance, and classical modern as vehicles to engage with the spiritual energy to coexist together both in the studio and on the stage.
