Upcoming Workshops

Talawa Technique with Latanya Tigner. Saturday, April 1, 4 pm – 5:30 (90 min) Latanya’s Talawa Technique workshops welcome everyone! The focus is on learning elements of the technique, for example, the seven levels of movement of the spine (Snake), and the 32 arm movements (Bird) informed by Latanya’s deep cultural and movement contextual understanding of and experience with West and Central African forms, dances of the African Diaspora and African American social dances. Toward the end of class she combines those elements into a combination so that students can experience the layering of the elements of the technique and the joy of dancing together in community.

Workshop Sign up. Class size limited to 8 people. Workshop Fee sliding scale $0 – $40.
