Dance workshop: Story through movement


Our current exhibition, The Sky After Rain, presents the stories of three queer members of the Iranian diaspora: Payam, Shyla, and Shaya. Their stories are interpreted through dance by choreographer and dancer Tara Jada Samaya.

In this introduction to dance, learn to use your body and movement to tell meaningful stories. Facilitated by experienced dance teacher Joshinder Chaggar, this workshop is suitable for beginners and will create safe place for all bodies.
