TRANS DANCE SPACE
with Peter Kohring
Thursdays / 6:00 – 7:00 PM
Trans Dance Space is an ongoing dance/movement workshop for anyone who identifies as trans and/or nonbinary. This is a free space intended to provide connectivity through art, for the trans community, which can include or not include discussion of what it means to be in the community. In this space we will build community, resiliency and trust through dance/movement, performance and composition. Workshop explorations include; guided improvisation, freestyle jams, collaborative games, solo and group research/composition and dance parties! All workshops include a check-in, warm up and check out. Every Thursday 6-7pm. All experience levels welcome! This space is accessible to new and experienced dancers looking for community through art. All workshops will be held virtually until safe to start in-person and will require a computer or smartphone and WiFi to participate. Most importantly, this space is open to discussion/critique on how we may be more accessible. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions or comments.
