Takoma Park MOVES in April

As the seasons change, so too does our line up of Takoma Park MOVES! For the rest of the season most of these gatherings will be facilitated by the delightful Stephanie Miracle. Stephanie is, as many of you know, a wonderful mover, an insightful educator, and a provocative maker. She’s also in her last few months of graduate school, and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for her next. Be sure to catch her while you can here at Dance Exchange! This month we have a shorter schedule, with only 3 classes. Stephanie is going to be leading the first two weeks, April 5 (with live music by David Schulman) and April 12.

There will be NO class on Saturday, April 19, and our last week will feature a special guest: Caroline Barna. Caroline is a the Associate Artistic Director of UpRooted Dance, a former DX intern, and an emerging and talented artist. Caroline will be facilitating Takoma Park MOVES on Saturday, April 26.

Saturdays, 10 to 11:30 am. $10. All are welcome!
