Sparks Museum & Cultural Center is pleased to offer this Creative Movement Dance Workshop and Demonstration taught by Eve Allen. Free to the public, the workshops will teach participants movement theory, drawing inspiration from Nevada-based maps, music, poetry, and artwork provided by art students at Truckee Meadows Community College.
Creative Movement Drop-in sessions are open to all levels, ages 3 to adult– no prior experience in dance is needed. A Choreography Workshop will also be offered and is a three-day intensive class for ages 12 to adult. This workshop will culminate with an informal performance on Sunday, to show friends and family their creations.
