Instructor: Marta Renzi
June 18 - 21
Monday - Thursday
2 - 6pm
Where does dancing come from? What goes on inside your mind and body when you make something? Join director / choreographer Marta Renzi and explore the creative process - hers, yours and the group’s. The daily 4-hour session will include improvisation, learning and devising movement phrases, and just plain old play. It will culminate in an informal sharing outside on the grounds of Edgewood Farm.
No previous experience required. Wear comfortable shoes.
