Nov 15- Nov 29
Monday 3PM-5PM

Discover movement as a universal language you can use to communicate and collaborate with diverse artists and audiences. Through guided prompts, participants will identify what makes their natural movement unique as well as what messages they’d like to express. We will explore ways you can allow movement to inspire your current artistic practices as well as how you might incorporate movement in your medium of choice (visual arts, design, writing, music, theatre, spoken word, performance, multimedia). Participants will have the option to practice artistic leadership by sharing their movement patterns or concepts with the group. There will be an opportunity to examine your current relationship to movement through the lens of body neutrality. This is not a typical dance class; there will be an emphasis on individual expression over technique and participants of all abilities and backgrounds are welcome
