About

Welcome to Joshua Legg / Social Arts Projects. Joshua’s work spans a variety of performance, visual art, and curatorial practices that typically address social justice or environmental justice concerns in contemporary America.

Joshua is a performer, choreographer, theatre director, painter, curator, and writer. Since 2017, he has directed Wilson College’s innovative low-residency program with concentrations in choreography, creative writing, directing, directing and choreography for musical theatre, interdisciplinary arts, and visual arts. The Wilson MFA is rooted in human ecology, and Joshua teaches the anthropological perspective, training students to conduct fieldwork which they then develop into creative ethnographies as a method of practice-led research.

At Wilson, he also serves as the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.

The 109 dances he has choreographed and directed span site-specific works, concert and dancetheatre, multimedia films, musical theatre, opera, and performance art. He has taught students from 3 years old to 70, and has served as a master teacher and guest lecturer/speaker for ACDA conferences, ADF’s Paul Taylor Project, the Dance Teacher Summit, and various universities, preprofessional and private studios, community arts programs, and high schools—he also recently served as an adjudicator for Baltimore’s AKIMBO site-specific dance festival. Joshua’s recent curatorial projects include a shared exhibition for printmakers Eric Avery and Adam DelMarcelle, and collaborations with other curators that featured the works of photographer Therese Frare, and the Indonesian artist collective Taring Padi. His book, Introduction to Modern Dance Techniques, grew out of his writing for Dance Teacher and Dance Spirit magazines. (The book is available in English, French, and Italian.) 

Joshua is an associate member of the Stage Directors & Choreographers Society.
