Participants with any level of dance or movement practice— total beginners, of any age and ability—are welcome, and invited to experience the roots of locomotion and physical expression we share with animals. Human dance and movement share many practices with the animal kingdom. We move to attract and charm others, to ward off and defend, to migrate, to celebrate and to mourn. Throughout overlapping histories of social, cultural and concert dance, we will shake a tail feather, fly like an eagle, lumber like a bear, and ‘float like a hummingbird and sting like a bee.’
This workshop is wheel-chair and walker accessible and is suitable for multi-age movers, ages 5-95.
