In advance of her upcoming show at Velocity Dance Center, performer Jody Kuehner (AKA Cherdonna Shinatra) will be teaching an movement-based class open to all levels of dancer (including complete novices) this week, Thursday, May 19 and Friday, May 20, at the new V2 space, formerly Value Village on 11th Ave in Capitol Hill. Kuehner’s character Cherdonna is much beloved in the dance and theatre scene and has received national acclaim for her uplifting, child-like (but never naive) philosophy, which will form the core of this two-day workshop.
From the event page:
Together, we’ll bring out the bright lights of human existence, we’ll be better together, we’ll say yes, we’ll excite our inner child, activate our aura, we’ll be nice to ourselves, practice patience, use our voices, use our bodies, use our imaginations, we’ll mobilize our witchiness, we’ll use duration to achieve bliss, we’ll sweat, laugh, we’ll bridge our body as a vessel to our capacity as an energetic dynamism.
Wear something comfortable to move in, comfortable sneakers and also a pair of shoes that make you feel fabulous–high heels or some kind of fancy footwear.
The workshop takes place over two afternoons, but you can also drop in for one day. RSVPs are appreciated, but required.
