  • 14 February 2019 - Classes with Kelly Keenan

    We are pleased to welcome Kelly Keenan for another week of dances classes this winter. This workshop explores ways to transfer the tactile experience we get from the floor and each other into dancing through space. The class will propose different tasks, prompts, metaphors and images to guide, layer and shape our experience of a dance. The classes will weave from floor to standing and with a great interest in the artful play and pleasure of dancing. Not to be missed!
