Movement Creation Workshop

May 4 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Join Chrissy Baxter and Dance Together Project for a Movement Creation Workshop where we will create a one-of-a-kind dance piece together! This workshop will consist of a general movement warm-up, followed by a brief conversation around the topic of nature and summer. With this topic in mind, Chrissy will then lead participants through a series of improvisation activities, movement games, and setting of choreography based on movement we have created collaboratively. This workshop is a great opportunity to explore contemporary dance and create a unique dance collaboratively with our community! Open to all ages and abilities and great for families.
