February 21 @ 6:30 PM 8:00 PM

The Spring Online Inclusive Dance Workshop Series 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. Spring workshops begin Wednesday, January 17, 2024. Regular classes conclude on May 1. No classes will be held on March 27. Registration is required to receive the Zoom link.

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.

The organizers will email the Zoom link shortly before the start of each workshop to those who registered. If you are registering after 12pm CST on the day of the workshop, please email inclusivedanceworkshops@gmail.com to get the Zoom link. Those who register after 12pm CST on the day of the workshop may not automatically be sent the Zoom link.
