Dance Discussion & Workshop

Posted in Event Calendar · Comments Off on Dance Discussion & Workshop 

Special Dance Discussion/Workshop by Gabrielle Barnett. Work with movement improvisation structures designed to bring awareness to our habits and choices of orientation — in relation to the space around us and other people. Learn a score that will be part of the afternoon performance along the Delaney Park Strip and through downtown to the Museum — workshop participants will be welcome to join that section of the performance. Appropriate for people of all ability levels — no dance training necessary.
