Dancing on the Schuylkill Community Dance Workshop
Mar 01, 2014 05:07PM
Dancing on the Schuylkill is a community dance workshop for adults led by choreographer Alie Vidich, the producing director of INVISIBLE RIVER, a dance and music performance that celebrates the Schuylkill River and the ability of live performance to unite communities in a way unlike any other. Workshop participants will learn a dance, combining modern dance techniques and improvisation, to be performed this summer on an island in the middle of the Schuylkill River. Classes run from 6:30 to 8 p.m., Tuesdays, March 25 to July 8, at Christ Church Neighborhood House in Old City.
No previous dance experience is necessary, but participants must be ages 14 or over. Dress rehearsals are scheduled for July 10 and 11, and performances are July 12 and 13.
Vidich comments, “We want the community to experience the unmatched joy and excitement of live performance. This is an amazing opportunity for anyone to perform in INVISIBLE RIVER.”
