Elise Long offers a new inter-generational improvisation/performance workshop on Fridays this summer for all uninhibited movers, 8 to 108 years old. Participants will collaborate on and perform large community dance works directed by Ms. Long to be performed at various community functions throughout the year. Additionally, participants can also create their own original works to be performed in their own concerts twice each year. Professional performers are also very welcome to join, so jump on the bandwagon and be part of STH’s new gypsy band of movers and shakers!
