Contemplative Dance Workshop with Denise Fujiwara

March 15 / 7:00 PM - March 17 / 4:00 PM

A workshop in deep, simple, creative dance.  Good training for your body and mind.  Using Japanese Butoh and creative post-modern dance principles we’ll work towards becoming more present and therefore more creative while expanding movement vocabulary and conditioning the body for strength and agility.  The work can be done at many levels and challenges both the beginner and professional dancer.  If you can walk, you can do this dance work.

Friday 15 March 7-9 pm
Saturday 16 March 9-12 pm
Sunday 17 March 9-12 pm, 2-4 pm

Cost: $150.00 (partial attendance is possible; student rate available)
