House Dance Workshop & Artist Talk with Mai Lê Hô, LayeRhythm
Date & Time: Saturday, March 16, 2024 1-3PM
Ages: 8+
Cost: FREE!
Limited space available, registration required.

This class starts with a warm-up. We then learn some basics of house dance. To digest and fully integrate this vocabulary, we practice freestyle and/or choreography through game-based exercises and exchanges. The class is designed to connect movement with music and history, to provide tools for creativity and individuality.

This event is a Residency Community Program, presented in partnership with Works & Process LaunchPAD “Process as Destination”. As part of a residency at BAC, we ask each artist to build and facilitate a Community Program. Community Programs are a unique opportunity for both artists-in-residence and our local community to gather, engage, and be in conversation with one another through art. Community Programs are free engagements open to the public and/or in collaboration with a local community partner.
