Malonga Casquelourd Center for the Arts, Studio E (3rd floor)
A fresh spin on our monthly dance jams, join AXIS Dancers Lani Dickinson and AJ Guevara for an evening of beginner-friendly improvisation. We encourage participants to arrive 10-15 minutes early to sign-in. The beginning of the evening will be used to go over access needs, touch preferences, and build trust amongst one another before flowing into less structured improvisation. *Please read our fragrance-free policy below
$12 per class; cash, card, and check accepted at the door, or register online below. No one turned away for lack of funds. Our InCommunity events are geared towards movers of all levels, experience and ability. This is a great way to connect and enjoy moving with the extended AXIS community in our accessible studio.
Please note, physical contact during improvisation is optional for participants--we will provide stickers for you to indicate whether you consent to contact, want to be asked before contact, or do not consent/want to be asked for physical contact.
Wear comfortable clothing, yoga wear, sweats and comfy dance gear that you can move in. Folks typically go barefoot, however, wear tennis shoes or dance shoes if you need them. Bring your water bottle.
The Malonga Center has all-gender and wheelchair accessible restrooms.
All events at the Malonga Casquelourd Center for the Arts are accessible to those using mobility devices. Front entrance and second-floor restroom doors have power-operated doors with push and kick plates. Two elevators are available as well as a ramp from the elevators into our third-floor studios.
While AXIS provides ASL interpretation for select performances and education events, we do not regularly have ASL interpreters available for our in-studio classes. When possible we will work to provide ASL interpretation when requested.
FRAGRANCE AND MULTIPLE CHEMICAL SENSITIVITIES
Although we cannot guarantee a completely scent-free space, our goal is to make our events as fragrance-free as possible for the health and safety of performers, audience, staff, and volunteers with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS). We request that all people please NOT wear fragrance or scented products when attending AXIS Dance Company events. However, we cannot control the use of cleaning products, scents, or common food allergens within the building. *Bathroom products at the Malonga will be fragrance-free
