Upcoming Dance Events at UCR!

For those of you who have free time during Spring Break, there are several events going on at UCR and at the Culver Center, which is a great space in downtown Riverside. All events are related to the work of indigenous choreographers who use their traditional dance forms to express themselves in today’s world. All of the master classes, workshops, lectures and screenings would be extra credit, and the performance on April 19 would be appropriate for the mandatory concert critique. Here is the information on the residency, courtesy of Kathleen DeAtley from UCR:
