Highlights from Our Creative Movement Workshop

On July 19, 2017, Dina Denis conducted a creative movement workshop with dancers Lisa Craig, Yuki Fukui, Evelyn Hoelscher, Madison McGrath and Jared Stern. Using structured improvisation, Dina taught a honey bee inspired dance for a group of  multigenerational participants to learn and perform together. The Dance Into Light Dancers completed the afternoon with a premiere performance in the garden of Dina's new work Peace Among the Restless set to music How Lovely Is Thy Dwelling Place by the Exultate Festival Chorus - Chamber Orchestra Masterworks of Worship Collection Brahms Requiem. The participants were then treated to a special tour of the Voelker Orth's honey bees by Urta, the museum's resident bee keeper.
