Arts centers offering dance event

March 18, 2007


Kansas University's Lied Center, in conjunction with the city of Lawrence, the Lawrence Arts Center and the KU department of music and dance, is sponsoring Dance Across Lawrence, a communitywide celebration of dance, on March 31.

The daylong event will expose people to different types of movement and promote the art of dance. During the day, there will be free classes, workshops and mini performances across Lawrence. Those who participate in daytime activities will be offered discounted tickets to the ArmitageGone! dance performance at 7:30 p.m. at the Lied Center.

Classes for kids and adults will teach swing, ballet, hip-hop, modern and many other styles of dance.

The Dance and Film Making Workshop will teach a few ways to think about the camera and dance. Participants will explore these ideas and create a short improvisational "dance film" illustrating these ideas. No dance experience is necessary.
