Bec Jones is a superstar of Australian dance, has an absolute abundance of knowledge and the best bit is, she lives here in Tasmania!

“In this workshop we will take a closer look at the finer details, the nuances, the delicate features our bodies can articulate whilst still moving at large & building momentum within the body. We’ll dissect the torso, get immersed in the finicky & the frenetic & ask questions of ourselves in the process. How intricate can our web become?”

 Sunday 2nd June

10am-12pm

Tasdance studio, 197 Wellington Street, Launceston 7250.

$20 on the door (cash only)

All welcome (aged 13 +)
