Keval Kaur Khalsa
Professor of the Practice of Dance

My spiritual path is that of a Sikh, which translates as “student”. As a life-long learner, my research focus is embodied, experiential education, particularly that which promotes social change. I am interested in ways that dance, theater and yoga can be used as tools for personal and social transformation, particularly with communities often identified as “at risk”. Current research projects include:
• a BASS Connections-supported study of the effects of a regular yoga practice on middle school students in Orange County, NC,
• the use of interactive theater to address issues of domestic violence, sexual assault, and sexual health.
