Recent Press!



Not just for dancers! All genders welcome!

Just a reminder that this project is not a dance project, but a performance project. You do NOT have to have any dance training to participate! Just a willingness to engage fully with the process. There will be some "Movement for Everybody" sessions, but as the title suggests it is designed for all abilities and levels of movers. The piece will utilize the assets that people bring to the project. There will be text, song, spoken word, acting, moving, and art making of all types. 

Also note that you do not have to identify as a woman to participate in this project!

Hope that you can attend the Wednesday night information session!
