Thurs., Jan. 21
4:30-5:15 p.m. CT
Join us for a free-flowing improv class. We will explore a range of musical styles—folk, classical, contemporary, and more—to learn how they influence different qualities of movement. At the end, we will each find new music that moves us and piece together the movement of those in the class.
