Long Winter Drag: Creative Movement Workshop with Charlie
March 30 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Presented in partnership with Queer Yukon:
Charlie is offering an imagery guided creative movement workshop, with the goal of breaking down habitual movement and discovering new ways of moving. This workshop will be about setting aside our heads, and getting into our bodies. We will explore our tiniest movements to our most expansive, the limits of our forms, and our imaginations. This workshop is for people with all types of physical ability. Bring water, and comfy clothing you can move in!
