Since it was founded by Liz Lerman in 1976, Dance Exchange has produced more than 100 innovative dance/theatre works, presented thousands of performances and conducted innumerable community encounters. Their studios in Takoma Park, MD provide a home for dancers, tai chi practitioners, yoga enthusiasts, and of course, the Mark H Taiko School!
Now, Dance Exchange needs our help to continue to serve the DC area’s vibrant arts community. Mark H is offering a workshop as a fundraiser for Dance Exchange. Your $40 registration will go ENTIRELY to help support this long-standing institution in the dance community!
Just what is this workshop? In a word: AWESOME! This is a taiko (Japanese drumming) workshop geared specifically for movers! Dancers have always been some of the best taiko players because of their acute body awareness and rhythmic training. Now, after many years of collaborating with dancers, Mark H wants to invite all dancers to try taiko for the first time! This workshop is not just for professional dancers – it is for everyone interested in exploring the relationship between rhythm and movement.
Registering for this workshop will help ensure that Dance Exchange has a home to create their work; community artists have studios in which to rehearse; intergenerational artists have a place to connect and collaborate; teens discover the magic of movement; and more!
