Here’s what we’ll do:
1. Share creative and critical perspectives. We will be sharing and expanding choreographic practices through digital online tools.
2. Move together online. Join a google+ hangout and experiment with other makers as they try translating their creative practices to the online space.
3. Create internet-specific work. You’ll be instructed on using some of the best online creative tools to create your own internet-based videos, word clouds, mashups, and more.
4. Join a global community of dancers. When you’re making, talking and learning together, chances are you’ll make friends.
Here’s how you join.
You’ll get an email with further instructions on how to join our google+ circle so that you can participate in hangouts.
