Sean Dorsey Dance Workshop says
This friendly and inviting workshop is led by award winning transgender choreographer and dancer Sean Dorsey, and everyone is welcome – especially terrified beginners!

Understanding that some transgendered people do not feel comfortable in participating in public workshops, Sean and company creates a judgment-free safe space, leading participants through simple and playful movement exercises, dance warm-ups, and exclusive material from their own repertoire. No experience necessary!

Please wear comfortable clothing that does not interfere with your ability to move (sweatpants, shorts or loose pants and a comfortable shirt are suggested). There will be no physical touching involved, and all dancers are encouraged to participate barefoot.

Tickets are Pay What Makes You Happy. Stick around for a complimentary artist lunch and talk following the workshop.
