The project is a series of 10 intensive weekends of 12 hours each and 7 Cultural Talks. The repertoire of 7 dances was decided upon in the introductory weekend. We will learn the techniques of each of the dance styles decided upon, do dance technique training and yoga, learn about the cultural and historical backgrounds for the different dance styles, learn about choreography, staging, stage make-up and costumes. There is a certificate of participation for all who complete the program. You don't have to live in Seattle to join the project. In the past the Seattle chapter has had members from Oregon, California, Texas and Canada and we will be glad to welcome you and host you if you come from afar. Please register to secure your spot ASAP.
Cost: $200 per weekend with 10 participants.
We are happy to return to Shay Moore's wonderful Studio Deep Roots Dance in Greenwood!!!
