Enjoy Scotiabank Nuit Blanche and try a kathak class!
As part of a 12 hour, non stop dance class event called All Together Now, Joanna de Souza will lead a kathak class on Sunday, September 30, 2012 from 5:00 – 6:00 AM at 111 Richmond St East of York St, Toronto (Outside of the Richmond Adelaide Centre)
Built form and public space give rise to an ambient choreography that shapes and directs our urban experience in tangible ways. All Together Now brings the body in motion into the architecture of the city in an experiential collaboration. Like architecture, dance requires the creative manipulation of materials (in this case the body in motion) to compose a distinctive world.
Throughout each hour of the 12-hour span of the event, audience participants learn a different style of dance, coached by professional instructors from the field. From hip hop to Kathak to tai chi; each of the 12 styles of dance reflecting the urban and cultural landscape of our city. In this case the movement is the message.
Each hour will feature a different dance form and instructor, some with live music to accompany the class. Audience participation is required! Wear tights, dancing shoes or ghunghru depending on the schedule.
