We will explore inclusive dance concepts, improvisation scores, and ways of creating dance on Zoom. Participants have the option of being performers: in June the dance will be video recorded on Zoom and edited to create a short dance film.

This dance group is for adults of all abilities, disabilities, backgrounds, genders, and levels of experience with dance. Ages 18+. The group is facilitated by Joanne Cuffe, who has facilitated dance groups full-time since 2013 with people with myriad ways of moving, perceiving and communicating.
