Creative Synergy: Dance and Poetry/Flash Writing with Tessa Cheek
May 17, 7:00-9:00 pm at Weehawken Ridgway
This all-levels contemporary dance class combines intensive writing prompts with movement designed to shake up your spirit and your sentences.
Participants don’t have to “be a dancer" (or a writer) to join, just a creative person looking to get inspired. This fun two-hour evening event should leave you feeling like you've got in some exercise and play in addition to fresh words. Tuition: $40.
