This Fall, Dance To The People, an open collective aiming to provide spaces and shared opportunities for dance training, movement research, discussions, and performance, is curating a workshop series geared towards the professional development and exchange of dance teaching skills, at BAX | Brooklyn Arts Exchange.

Every Monday from 6:30pm to 8:30pm, from October 19 to December 7, we will be holding an open adult technique class, for dancers of all levels and well as dance teachers. Time will be devoted at the end of every session for an open discussion of the goals, techniques and teaching practices of the class.

Dance to the People, is part of a set of programs called Creating Space at BAX | Brooklyn Arts Exchange.
