How you think is how you move!

This workshop is geared toward choreographers, improvisors, and dance teachers. WHAT WE WILL DO This workshop will bring you new tools to support idea generation, clarity of movement, and communication for the purposes of teaching and collaboration.

All of this is designed to identify and champion the concepts that arise through your movement and composition choices.
