Great news... We have added one more master class to the series! 🥳

➡️ Accessible Modern Dance
➡️ Thursday, April 11, 5:30 p.m., Carmichael 2307

Open to movers of all experience levels, this class will explore modern dance elements accessible to all bodies in a comfortable and safe environment. Through improvisation, movement exploration, and modern dance fundamentals, dancers will cultivate a sense of connection to their bodies and fellow community members as they build phrase work and relationships throughout the class. People of all abilities are welcome! Instructor Payton Chopp (she/her) is a dance artist and educator based in Raleigh, NC. In her personal practice, Payton explores the idea of “process” in modern dance by integrating improvisation and play with her passion for technique. She currently dances professionally with Black Box Dance Theatre, a nonfiction modern dance company, and works in Vocational Rehabilitation with a focus on justice, accessibility, and dignity.
