Tara put new programming on hold during the pandemic, and is planning to offer family dance workshops (ages 3-93) this summer and fall.  All participants over the age of 5 must be vaccinated.

Times and locations TBA!


A Creative Dance Class for Families

In this intergenerational class, parents/caregivers have the opportunity to participate in a creative activity with their children, without being the leader.  Children have the chance to initiate ideas and collaborate with their caregivers, engaging with their grownups in a wholly different way.  Using music from around the world and drawing on her background in Indian, West African and Japanese art forms, Tara leads warm-up activities, teaches a movement phrase, and guides families to create movement, tell stories and have fun together.  This is a high-enjoyment, low-pressure class...no dance experience or athletic aptitude required!  Parents and children, grandfathers and granddaughters, aunts and nephews, or other caregivers with children ages 5+ welcome.  

This class was inspired by the work of Jeff Bliss, a remarkable dance educator at Jacob's Pillow.  When Tara first took Jeff's class years ago, she was amazed at the bonding experience generated between her older son and herself in his lively "Families Dance Together" class.
