August 3-18th 2018
A long form engagement in the ways we interpret performance, as well as performing in day to day interactions and the un-curated, simplified ways performance can exist on a variety of stages.
From the curious, the ponderous, the misfits, and those that don't fit into one container; the classically trained, and the contemplative movers, and those that like to make an entrance simply by crossing a room; to the writers seeking creation beyond the desk: embodied, integrated, and introspective; to the theater artists who want to live in their bones and move from the marrow; to those that are tethered to composition and those that rebel against melody; to the realists, the conceptual thinkers; to the families of movers, the grandmothers too, and to all those that want to participate as witness, observer, and hold the space for what is sure to be a time filled with effervescent energy, performance for 'right now', and the realness to know it'll fade as soon as it's over. We invite you.
Restrictions Apply [void where prohibited]
Exploring historical and present conversations on the expectations of women, Restrictions Apply [void where prohibited] is a provocative performance art work intended to spark dialog on the many shapes women conform to, adopt, reshape, and discard.

Ballet for Adults
A ballet-based class for adults that focuses on classic techniques combined with some good laughs. These classes are open to adult dancers who crave ballet technique, at a relaxed pace. You'll experience a chill warm-up, a classical barre atmosphere, and ample restorative stretching. Most importantly, an hour of hard work. Ballet, and dance in general, is an excellent work out, improving posture, toning muscles, increasing cardiovascular stamina, and flexibility.
