ACDA’s Give & Take: The Joy of Movement with Gerri Houlihan

This donation-based class is part of ACDA’s Give & Take Series—Virtual Dance for a Cause. The class is for dancers of various skill levels to bring us together in an open and supportive way and connect us all to our love for dance and community. Grounded in the fundamentals of traditional modern technique, particularly the work of José Limón, the class focuses on concepts of alignment, core strength, and the use of breath for efficiency of movement. The class will begin with simple floor exercises and develop into standing warm-up combinations and a center movement phrase.

Because music and its relationship to movement is such an important focus for Gerri’s approach to dance, we are delighted to say that music for these classes will be provided by our wonderful long-time ADF musician, John Hanks.

**Advance registration recommended.  Zoom link will not be included in MindBody confirmation email, but will come in a separate email from ADF.  If you register the day of the event, you may receive your Zoom link a few minutes before class.**


During these unprecedented times of the pandemic, social change, physical distancing and digital connections, the American College Dance Association (ACDA) proudly presents opportunities to take classes from exceptional teachers and artists while giving to organizations, badly in need of funds, through your donations. We are pleased to connect guest artists with dancers from across the country and around the world.
We welcome ACDA members and non-members to dance and rejoice!

Not only are ACDA Guest Artists volunteering their time to raise funds to help ACDA continue to serve our Membership in new and virtual ways, but they are also raising funds for a charitable organization of their choice.

All proceeds from ACDA’s GIVE & TAKE – Virtual Dance for a Cause will be divided between ACDA and the Gerri Houlihan’s charity of choice, the American Dance Festival. Your donations will serve two powerful causes, so your generosity is important and highly appreciated.
