Urban Bush Women in Rhode Island
Art Activating Community

October 27, 7:00–9:00 PM
Ashamu Dance Theatre, Brown University
Lyman Hall – 83 Waterman Street

An unstoppable force in American dance, Urban Bush Women launch a five month project with FirstWorks, a driving force in the Providence art scene, along with American Dance Legacy Institute and Rites & Reason Theatre.

This jam dance workshop celebrates “every body” and the diversity that attributes to a unique and powerful community. This is a movement class designed for the community so no prior dance experience is needed. Participants explore UBW’s technique with close attention to the use of breath, weight, call and response, and polyrhythm. Space is limited!

Free – registration required.
