    Time: 1-4pm 
    Cost: $250

    A six week series swirling in poetic fantasy and grounded in foundational clowning philosophy and technique, exploring the imagination body of The Clown through movement, music and…..clown choreography?!
    Inspired by dance theater elements, imagery, texture and shape, we will draw from the unexpected places.  The essence of each clown’s ingenious authentic expression will be unveiled as we experiment, devise, invent, improvise, liberate, play, create and delight in the UNKNOWN...all through the extraordinary and uniquely beautiful mind of the clown.
    ***All levels of movers and clowns are welcome.  Clown Dance is for everyone! Yea! ‘Cause that’s the truth!
