Expand your dance and performance tools while boosting your confidence. Participate in this uplifting dance & writing workshop to discover more about your relationship with the outdoors, nature, and creativity.

Trace Dance Practice gives performers, non-performers, artists of all genres, and everyone in between --  strengthened awareness of space, visual composition, time, the body, and dancing with a whole heart & whole body.
 

We'll be working outdoors. The weather will alter our dancing, our bodies, our writing. Unless the weather is truly, utterly inclement, in which case, we will change locations and/or truncate or post-pone.

For more information, read on...

Trace Dance Practice workshops include an energizing and grounding warm-up, and other useful sequences. Some  exercises involve music. Some are with incidental sound only. Time will be spent working solo, in duets, and in groups, creating dance performance scores.

Please bring: layers of clothes you can move in and be warm (or cool!), pencil/pen and paper/notebook, water, snacks, extra socks, outdoor clothing, weather-appropriate footwear.

*Again, previous dance training is not required!
