"The purpose of art is higher than art. What we are really interested in are masterpieces of humanity." -Alonzo King
Demetrius will present and discuss profound spiritual takeaways he has discovered from studying different dance techniques and how a better understanding of dynamic alignment can expand one's imagination. The workshop will include a guided meditation, movement exploration, and discussion. Viewing dance as a radical act of self-care, this workshop is especially intended for artists-activists that want to continue exploring their relationship with art: a powerful tool that allows us to create what we most deeply envision. No dance experience necessary, just an open heART!
About Demetrius: Born and raised in the south side of Chicago, Demetrius began dancing with street hip-hop at the age of 15. He has traveled nationally and internationally as a professional dancer sharing his passion for the arts which he uses to inspire social change. Demetrius is also a yoga teacher.
This activity is part of a series of 12 self and community care workshops and events. It is made possible by the Headwaters Foundation for Justice; and by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
