Come to Our $5 Workshop! July 09, 2017 16:14

Join us Sunday, July 23rd from 2:00 to 4:00 pm, for an Introductory dance workshop presented in conjunction with Quilt of Belonging exhibit at the Cotton Factory. The impressive work of textile art has a similar mission as American Tribal Style® dance!  The goal is to recognize diversity, celebrate our common humanity and promote harmony among people.

During our introductory workshop, you'll enjoy an exciting performance and hear a brief history of the dance form. Then join in as we break down a number of basic movements for you to try! From graceful hand floreos to knock out hip shimmies, you'll be moving to the music in no time! We will end the workshop with a large group dance as a lively celebration of your new, found skills. No experience necessary!

There is a participants fee for the workshop of just $5! Pre-registration is required so please get your tickets in advance by following the link below.

Peace by Piece: Stitching Together Canadian Stories
The Quilt of Belonging exhibit and all scheduled workshops will take place on the third floor. The entire exhibition schedule and related programming can be found here.
The Quilt of Belonging is a gorgeous portrait of the human family. At 120 feet long, the collaborative project contains 263 blocks which portray the cultural legacies of all the First Peoples in Canada and every nation of the world at the dawn of the new Millennium.
It took over 6 years for volunteers to find a representative from each of the 263 cultural groups on the quilt. The inaugural exhibition of the completed project took place April 1st, 2005 at the Canadian Museum of Civilization and it has been touring the globe ever since then.
