"The arts are a challenging and under-appreciated field. However, I believe very deeply in the importance of creative work for individuals/communities and for social change. We need more art in the world - not merely for entertainment, but for the well-being of our communities, to reconnect to the self, and to foster a more universal and inclusive language. Being an artist is a constant risk, but one that is well worth the moments of inspiration that allow us to create, perform, share, teach and inspire."
Join Ruth for Chair Dance Choreo! She is well-known for delivering a fun and exciting class with innovative and challenging phrasing for all levels on this versatile apparatus! Heels may be required for costumes. Typical attire is black. Dress to your comfort level. By request, there is minimal floorwork in this routine. The four-song mashup doesn't have floorwork until the last piece. Long hair will be showcased! Neck health is imperative for the consecutive head/hair flicks and no long necklaces or earrings will be allowed (for safety's sake)!
8 sessions prepare for a student group performance on Saturday, April 1st. Dress rehearsal is March 31st. We hope you will join us on stage but you may take this series even if you opt out of performing in the showcase. Classes/Rehearsals meet consecutive Sundays.
Reschedule or cancel as many times as you need up to 24 hours in advance. Within 24 hours of class time, a reservation will be locked and no credit will be issued.
