Alicia Mullikin is a first generation Mexican-American and Native American dance artist and educator who strives to serve her community through activism in the arts. She is the director of EL SUEÑO, a company that uses dance as a gateway to community engagement, healing, and empowerment for marginalized communities. Her choreography weaves ancient and contemporary identities into physical manifestations that draw from her rich cultural experiences and deep-rooted ancestral ties. She has collaborated to blend film, poetry, and live music into her dance works, but focuses on merging social justice with dance. Through all of her work, Alicia aims to empower BIPOC communities and nurture the next generation of dance artists. She was recently featured in an Emmy winning episode of Borders & Heritage: Los Artists which screened on PBS and the Seattle Latino Film Festival. Follow @el.sueno.dance on IG.
