April ’24 Happenings

Posted on by Rachel Griffin

There’s a LOT going on this month at Danceworks. We don’t want you to miss a thing, so we are giving you a bite-sized listing that you can quickly scroll to find just the right class, workshop or performance for you!

This month we are putting a spotlight on dancer and choreographer, Sean Dorsey, in honor of Trans Day of Visibility (March 31).

Tune into our social media as we celebrate the joy, strength and courage of transgender and nonbinary people. We are choosing to use our platform as an educational dance resource to celebrate our roots, our gaps and encourage our community to continue growing their understanding of the cast history of dance. Keep an eye on our feed, the first Thursday of each month, to stay involved!
