Tilt: A Queer CI Lab and Jam

New Classes

UPSWELL:
Movement practices for riverside dwellers

NEW DANCE CLASS in FLORENCE, MA
Fridays 6 – 7:30, Studio Firenze
140 Pine St, studio 14 (2nd Floor) 

This class is for moving through space, connecting with the whole body, finding more curiosity in our dancing, invigorating ourselves during the deep winter, and cultivating joy in the body even when times are tough. This class will move between different states and rhythms, develop coordination and musicality, and produce sweat, stretch, and shine. This class aims to be body-positive, queer-centric, and accessible to people with different levels of dance experience. 

6-class series (drop-ins are welcome)
