Interested in creating a customized dance, but didn’t know where to start? Join us for our “Chance Dance” choreography workshop based on the choreographic methods of Merce Cunningham. Participants will use Chance methods like rolling dice and flipping coins to create a dance using movements that everyone can do. Participants will leave the class with new choreography techniques that can be used in multiple dance styles. Register by 10/13.
