Dancing Diaspora: Weekly Class with Marina

  • pieter performance space (map)

Dancing Diaspora is back!

Thursdays 7:30-9pm, starting back up Jan 18!


Diaspora is a beautiful word that signifies both place and displacement, connection and disconnection, past and future. This dance class seeks to translate these ideas into the body -- how can we embody principles of Afro-Latin dance practices while exploring our own unique expression? How can we embrace rigor and instinct, tradition and creativity, ancestry and individuality? Dancers are encouraged to cultivate an intimate relationship with the ground, a mobile spine and expressive pelvis, playful improvisation, and deep musicality. All levels welcome. Come ready to sweat and play!
