Diaspora is a complex word that signifies both place and displacement, collectivity and individuality, memory and futurity.  This dance class seeks to translate these ideas into the body — how can we embody principles of Latinx & African diasporic dance practices while exploring our own unique expression? How can we simultaneously embrace rigor and instinct, tradition and creativity, ancestry and individuality? The class frames these seemingly disparate ideas as complimentary and necessary for a collective practice of dance-and-change-making. Dancers are encouraged to cultivate an intimate relationship with the ground, a mobile spine and expressive pelvis, playful improvisation, and deep musicality. All bodies and levels of experience welcome. 

Come ready to sweat and play! 

Cash donations encouraged at the door.
