How We Move Party
Friday, June 10, 2016 from 4:00 to 6:00 pm

Free to High School Students
 
Philadelphia youth between the ages of 13-19 years are invited to explore dance and gesture in a fresh way at the How We Move Party, organized by The Fabric Workshop and Museum (FWM). How We Move is inspired by Ally, FWM’s current exhibition of art and dance by Janine Antoni, Anna Halprin, and Stephen Petronio.
 
Hosted in a transformed 7th floor event space, participants can express their creativity, enjoy refreshments, dance to the grooves of DJ Geesissy, and watch a movement performances by Tanaya Thomas of the dance collective mokomotion. Additionally, the How We Move “video quilt”—a collaborative video project made from Instagram-submitted dance videos from throughout the Philadelphia area—will make its debut.
 
Dress to impress (yourself), grab some friends, and bring your style!
