Event Series Event Series (See All)

October 4, 2023 @ 6:30 PM 8:00 PM

The Inclusive Dance Workshop is a weekly Wednesday gathering for movers of all kinds. Facilitators will lead participants through an exploration of dance-making tools, dance techniques, and improvisational exercises. All bodies, minds and experience levels are welcome.

All workshops are held remotely via Zoom. We meet weekly on Wednesdays from 6:30 pm – 8 pm Central. Fall workshops begin Wednesday, September 13. Regular classes conclude on December 6. No classes will be held on November 22. Registration is required.

From our own homes/living spaces, we will work together to generate both individual and group movement phrases. Guest teachers from the inclusive dance community will teach workshops in their movement style and training including ballet, improvisation and voguing.

Please reach out to inclusivedanceworkshops@gmail.com with any questions.

Please note: to protect our community from Zoom bombing, the organizers are no longer posting Zoom links publicly. They will email the Zoom link to all who register shortly before the start of each workshop. You can also email inclusivedanceworkshops@gmail.com to request the Zoom link.
