Registration is Open for Free Huntsville Moving! Dance Workshops for Adults and Children
Initiated by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, Huntsville-area groups are celebrating dance this month with a variety of free community workshops, activities and public events. The new initiative titled Huntsville Moving! brings together three professional dance groups, Ballet Folklorico de Huntsville, Nicolay Dance Works and NobleMotion Dance to offer three-week dance workshops at the Wynne Home Art Center.
Developed for children ages 8 years old and up, free Dancing for the Camera workshop will explore the process of creating dances that complement the environment including in and around The Wynne Home. Instructed by SHSU professor of dance, Dionne Noble, the dances created from the workshop will be filmed and later screened at the finale Huntsville Moving! public event on April 16. Classes take place Mondays & Wednesdays from 4:30pm– 5:30pm starting March 28 through April 13.
The Huntsville Moving! dance workshop for adults will feature a different style of dance each week including an evening of historical and cultural Mexican dances with a European flavor, a class centered on making a movement signature from everyday gestures, and a social dance such as Ballroom Dancing or Waltz. The free workshop program takes place at the Wynne Home Art Center on Wednesdays from 6pm-8pm on March 30, April 6, and April 13.
Early registration is encouraged as space is limited. To register contact the Wynne Home Arts Center at 936-291-5434.
