KnoxMoves

KnoxMoves is a series of workshops offered by the Knox Dance Program to help us connect to the student body. Each term's workshops will follow a different theme, all of which are integral to the program's foundation. In Fall of 2014 we'll be focusing on Improvisation Theories and to kick us off we'll be having a Welcome Back Improv Jam and Dessert Reception on Thursday, September 25th, from 7-8:30pm in the Aux Gym! This event is open to everyone in the public, whether you want to move with us, play some music for us, or just come and observe.
