Creative Dance Workshops with Caroline Richardson

June 17-19 and June 24-26, 1:00-4:00 pm at Weehawken Ridgway

Creative Dance is an exploration into the creative process of Dance as living Art.

A workshop focused on this essential creative connection through improv, musical interpretation and the territory and trust of silence. A process in which all are part of the creative unfolding individually and collectively, encouraging an ethical model of artistic depth, value and oneness. Creative Dance is an opportunity intending to give students a valuable and rare experience to connect and trust in their own artistic gifts and to create individually and together an original piece to share with the public at the end of the Intensive in a casual studio "work in progress". It is essential that those who enroll in this journey have the courage and depth to commit to and trust in the mystery and unknown within creative alchemy. This intensive runs Monday-Wednesday, 1-4 pm, and will culminate with a performance piece at Sherbino Theater.

June 24 session is open to ages 13 and up, including adults. Register HERE
