This is a class for the physically willing. Students will learn repertory from Flyaway Productions' new work and will investigate issues of instability, hope, and resistance in physical language, as these states relate to incarceration. The class will take place on the set and apparatus for The Wait Room, located in the CAC's St. Joseph Street parking lot (located at the intersection of St. Joseph and Magazine Streets).

No previous dance experience is required! Space is limited: RSVP while spots last.

In the event of rain, the event will be held inside the CAC's 2nd floor rehearsal studio, and masks will be required to be worn by all attendees.
