Berkeley Morris Summer Workshops
Tuesdays, August 20 - September 17 , 2013 (except September 3rd), Berkeley
Every year Berkeley Morris hosts a series of FREE workshops in morris and related dance traditions. No experience is needed, and all are welcome! Workshops are taught by members of Berkeley Morris, or friends of ours from the local (or not so local) dance community. Come to one, or attend all four. Join us afterwards at the Jupiter Pub at 2181 Shattuck Ave. in downtown Berkeley.Each workshop will teach a particular style or tradition of Morris, and you don't have to have attended an earlier workshop to attend a later one (but of course you'll want to!). The particular styles and dances taught vary from year to year, so if you attended last year, come back for something new!
Workshops for 2013 will be held Tuesdays beginning at 7:30PM on August 20, August 27 August, September 10, and September 17, at Christ Church Berkeley, CA (2138 Cedar St, Berkeley, CA 94709).
