Dance teacher Tamiko French has developed a program centered around revitalizing creativity of storytelling with the building blocks of dance creation that infuses the visual and literary arts. See a video.
The 8-week workshop is designed to be sequential for participants, with each class building on the previous class. From a first class in which participants will use poetry, prose, dramatic writing, spoken word, or other writing as a stimulus to create movement, participants will learn about modern and jazz dance techniques and choreographic practice, collaborate and share results with others, study facilitated improvisation and play in dance, and refine their work for a sharing event for family, friends, and the community.
September 15-November 3 with a showing on November 3.
In-person only. $45 per workshop.
This program is for adults 55+. Pre-registration required as in-studio space is limited!
Proof of vaccination and masks are required at the door for all participants.
