CALLING ALL DANCERS!
On the occasion of UCLA’s centennial celebration, the Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance (WACD) is opening its studio doors and emphasizing the public in public university.
Professional/university-level dancers from within the UCLA student body and beyond are invited to join us for a series of free two-hour dance workshops with leading choreographers and dance-makers, enabling students to create stronger connections within the dance world and explore ideas and techniques together.
Curated by WACD professor and MacArthur Fellow Kyle Abraham, workshops will take place on the first Saturday of every month from March to June. Capacity for each workshop is limited to 35 participants; preregistration is strongly encouraged.
