Carbondale Arts

 

Dance Initiative is sponsoring a residency the week of May 22 to May 27, for two special guests. KDNK’s Raleigh Burleigh spoke with professional performer Marielis Garcia who, along with David Norsworthy of Toronto, Canada, will be co-leading two community dance workshops at the Launchpad. The artists seek to choreograph an essential "snap-shot" of Carbondale to weave into a larger, internationally-inspired creative endeavor. Registration is at danceinitiative.org.
