Community Dance Classes

For BRIC’s 40th Anniversary season, we are thrilled to welcome Urban Bush Women as our newest Artists-in-Residence, offering activities year-round at BRIC House, including Community Dance Classes, which are open to all ages and skill levels. 

These movement jam/dance classes embrace the idea that everyone has a unique and significant contribution to make, and that our bodies are powerful and capable. The goal is for "every body" to find their level of challenge and comfort and partake according to their abilities, and to appreciate the group’s diversity as a benefit to their community. Participants explore Urban Bush Women’s technique with close attention to the use of breath, weight, call and response, and polyrhythm. This is a movement class designed for the community, so no prior dance experience is needed.
