Dance = Freedom: Unleash Your Duende with Arielle Rosales
The Unleash Your Duende Workshop is an improv-based exploration of physical, mental, and spiritual liberation under the guidance of Arielle Rosales. Elements of Flamenco are introduced with sounds and movements influenced by the African Diaspora and New York City. How can we discover and celebrate our individuality, while supporting one another through the power of a co-existing community? How can we use art to be and how can being become art? Come share this unique experience in a nonjudgmental and loving environment open to all! All are welcome for this special series of classes celebrating movement as freedom of expression.
Additional classes in the Dance = Freedom series include the following:
- Ballez with Katy Pyle & Jules Skloot
- Urban Bush Women: Dance & Song for Every Body
- Ronald K. Brown/Evidence Community Class with Annique Roberts
