What does your body want to communicate?  Let your disabled body dance its story. What movement says you feel alive, what movement tells us you’re gonna cry? Explore new things and old, open up to the spirit and soul of dance. This class is for all levels and abilities.  If you are shy, this is the class for you.  If you are a professional, this class is for you.  If you think you can’t dance, this class is for you. Come explore and learn and move and let the movement move you – there will be you in every dance, and in dance there will be everything.

Movement Workshop Facilitator and Sins Performer, Antoine Hunter

Antoine Hunter is an Oakland-based dancer/choreographer, who started his career as a jazz dancer in High School, and expanded his repertoire to include ballet, jazz, tap, African, country-western, latin, and hip hop.   Antoine teaches students at numerous schools and performing arts centers, including Ross Dance Company, East Bay Center for the Performing Arts, ODC Dance Center, Youth in Arts, and more.  He is a proud member of both the African-American and Deaf/HOH communities.

Our workshops are open to anyone who is interested in exploring the intersection of sexuality and disability, regardless of prior experience in movement or performance.  If space becomes limited, we are prioritizing participants who identify as having a disability.  The space is wheelchair accessible.  Please refrain from using scented products, although we cannot guarantee a scent-free space.

To register, email your name, phone number and access needs to info@sinsinvalid.org.
