Sunday, June 5, 3-hour workshop: 2hrs will involve rehearsing with the participants to get them comfortable with making a group dance in the moment. The last hour will involve a 30-minute “People in Motion” improvisational dance in front of an audience *FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. ECDC will then perform a work in-progress, “If You Knew You Then”, which will demonstrate how making dances in the moment is a wonderful creative process and method of "setting" choreography. We will close out the day with a conversation. Photo above by Cecilia Trebisacci
