You are Invited!

It’s happening! And we want you! Join us for our Once in a Lifetime Dance Reunion, November 6–8, 2015. Feel free to come early and stay longer.

Reunite and celebrate our dance community (past, present, and future) at Prescott College. Even if you never took a dance class, come join the magic. Connect and move with new and old friends. Soak up the inspiration. Workshops, performances, relaxation, great food and company, networking, deep conversations, loads of love, and fun. Free childcare.

We are very excited about all that is coming together. Mizu Desierto, Nathan Montgomery, Christopher Mankowski, Maree ReMalia, Jess Kozel, and perhaps You!, will perform or lead a workshop. Moving Edge Ensemble –Improv Music for Dancers – is confirmed for the Saturday night dance party.

Guest musicians are welcome to join in. Mark Montague and the Crossroads Café will provide yummy, healthy meals. We have reserved the café for our Saturday luncheon.

Please read the details below, including deadlines, registration, and schedule, and ways to get involved.
