This movement jam/dance class embraces 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.
PLEASE NOTE: This program is first come, first served. Please arrive early to secure your spot in the class.
ABOUT URBAN BUSH WOMEN
Urban Bush Women (UBW) burst onto the dance scene in 1984 with bold, innovative, demanding and exciting works that bring under-told stories to life through the art and vision of its award-winning founder Jawole Willa Jo Zollar. The company weaves contemporary dance, music, and text with the history, culture, and spiritual traditions of the African Diaspora.
The BRIC Ballroom is a wheelchair-accessible, flexible performance space that accommodates a wide variety of configurations and performance styles. Located on the first floor of BRIC House.
For ticketed events, the Box Office opens one hour prior to show time. Advanced tickets can be purchased online.
