Dance Improvisation Series


Connection Dance Works and First City School of Dance

present a monthly Dance Improvisation Series!

Sunday, April 2, 2023

10:30am - 12:00pm First City School of Dance

with dance artist Lauren Runions

This session will consider our relationship to movement and writing, reading, and interpreting graphic scores. Participants will move through a somatic warm-up and a series of exercises studying processes of score-making.

The potential for performance or a proposal of performance will close the practice. 

Workshops are open to everyone, no experience necessary! 

$10 (cash or e-transfer)

Register by emailing:

First City School of Dance, 156 Union Street, Saint John, NB

Join us once a month for an open Dance Improvisation Workshop.

Each workshop will be led by a different dance artist allowing you to explore dance improvisation

through a variety of lenses.

Wear comfortable clothes you can move in and bring water.

We look forward to moving with you!
