Wisdom Project for Ages 40+ Begins October 3
The Wisdom Project provides ongoing opportunities designed for dancers ages 50 and over. Each independent process includes movement instruction and the creation or restaging of choreography. This dance melee is designed to eclipse prejudice and discrimination on the grounds of a person’s age with love, acceptance, and reverence of older adults. The Wisdom Project’s first endeavor will be a dance film conceived, directed, and choreographed by James Gregg. Process durations vary based on the choreographer’s vision.
