A Free Community Program
CHOP SHOP: Bodies of Work is proud to partner with The City of Bellevue Parks and Community Services Department to offer two FREE community programs! These unique classes serve as companion events to the CHOP SHOP Contemporary Dance Festival through education and experience.
Reading Dance is an engaging lecture/demonstration format with dancers from The Stone Dance Collective and Artistic Director Eva Stone. This lecture demystifies and reveals the creative process of how contemporary dance is made. Audience members will discover the type of movement language contemporary dance uses, learn how a dance piece is formed, and be able to ask questions of the choreographer and dancers about process and performance. Open to all ages.
Introduction to Modern Dance with Eva Stone is a free dance technique class for those interested in learning basic modern dance movement. No experience necessary! Open to ages 8+ to Adult. Please come in comfortable clothing.
Attend a free class and be eligible for a $5.00 ticket to the performance!
Classes are FREE but do require registration. Please call 425.452.6885 to register!
