On Sunday the sun will be shining and this snow will be a distant memory. Celebrate by joining Dance TAG (Teaching Artist Group) for a special workshop on THE TOOLBOX: MIND, MOVEMENT AND METHODS led by Elizabeth Johnson and Jame McCray from the Dance Exchange, the groundbreaking company from outside DC. The workshop will focus on tools drawn from the Dance Exchange's extraordinary toolbox for developing movement and choreography with applications ranging from schools to community work to dance companies. The workshop will have you moving with meaning, and creating choreography from content. Learn and practice methods for devising original work and generating movement in an environment that cultivates creativity, curiosity, and collaboration.


Sunday, March 25 from 4:00 - 6:00 pm

Community Education Center, 3500 Lancaster Ave, Phila 19104

The workshop is FREE. RSVP here<mailto:info at philadanceprojects.org>.
