Dancing Cy(i)phers, Elwah Movement, Ebonie Barnett, and Dimensions Dance Theater hope you are all well and are staying safe. As promised, we offer an online series of classes with an embodied experience of the cosmologies, techniques, and dances discussed in the Back to the Root event in July 2020. Workshops/classes will include history, philosophy, discussion, and technique.

The Zoom link will be emailed the day before the class.
