The Graceful Planet Moving Arts Center, located in Sandy Hook, CT, is proud to offer a unique opportunity to the community: the Pilobolus Community Dance Workshops. Pilobolus Dance Theater is based in Washington, CT, and is is world renowned for its imaginative athletic exploration and creative collaboration in the world of dance and movement. The Pilobolus workshops open the inner world of Pilobolus’ collaborative creative processes in a form accessible to anyone with good health and mobility. The class may include investigations of solo and group improvisation, exploration of compositional methods, and examination of individual and collective performance technique. Training in dance is not required, although a reasonable degree of fitness is advised, as participants are expected to be physically energetic and prepared to move enthusiastically. The work will be both fun and deeply challenging.

There are two groups forming for this exciting event: the kids workshop age eight to thirteen and the teen and adult workshop. The workshops will be held after school and in the evenings of February 3 and 4 and on Saturday, February 5. There will be a performance opportunity for the groups to share their work with the community. The cost for the workshops is $100. Call 203.426.8215 or visit for more information.
