The Saturday Workshop - with Courtney Mazeika
February 24, 2024 | 1-3 pm
Improvisational research and phrase work for intermediate/advanced dancers.
This workshop will explore movement improvisation and creative process. We will research our relationships to our sensations, imaginations, the space, objects, and the community in the room that day. Come as you are!
