Celebrating Dance and Each Other!

UPDATE: As part of our ongoing response to the public health threat posed by the coronavirus and COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the events associated with "Celebrating Dance and Each Other." We are tentatively planning to reschedule the weekend's events in October. Stay tuned!

Organized by Annie Dwyer and Carrie Huff, this weekend of alumni dance is intended to bring together former CFS dancers and the community that celebrated them during their early years.

Performances (all are followed by a reception):

There will be a simple improvisational score at the beginning of the performances on April 10 and 11 to open the show. We are hoping that all CFS dancers past and present will join us in celebrating dance by performing together during this improv. Leah Wilks is creating a score that will include memories of CFS, shapes, physical connection, and live music by Jim Henderson. Dancers will be asked to wear a specific color and arrive a little early. Dancers are welcome to dance in both performances or just one. Please let us know if you are interested and we will count you in and send you a score. To let us know, contact adwyer@cfsnc.org.

Living Arts Dance Wave

Aubrey Griffith-Zill will facilitate and guide us through imagery and improvisation opportunities to get the party started. Matthew Young will orchestrate a world of musical textures to inspire us. Jaylan Watson will bring the hype energy. It will be a moving opportunity for dancers and our community to connect and remember. Open to all – for movers of all abilities!

The Living Arts Dance Wave will be a welcoming and informative way to enter and deepen your practice of intuitive expression, for movers of all abilities. This is an opportunity for self-discovery and connection through movement and radical inner listening. Inspired by Ousia (oo-see-ahh): means essence, nature; that which makes a thing what it is; a person or object seen from within, yet not a material substance.
