Dances With Cyclops – Spring has sprung! As seedlings begin to sprout, a new life form will also be born at NLArts on Friday APRIL 10.

We will dream up and create our very own cyclopses – think one eyed, two headed, ten armed, or six legged creatures with super powers!

First we’ll sketch out these imaginative creatures on paper. Then we will play fun movement and dance games that involve mirroring, teamwork, simple acrobatics, and silly costume and prop play in order to prepare for and create our very own Cyclops Recital.

By the end of the workshop, our cyclops creations will have put on a lovely show…maybe they’ll even have a little dance party!

Plus Pizza!

Participants should wear clothes that are appropriate for getting messy
and having a good time.

Due to limited space, call now to register 267-476-2757
