Louisiana Noir! Master Class with Millie followed by Story Circles.
Louisiana Noir! class explores street and social dances of Louisiana. Some of the dances have their origins in night clubs and dance halls from Southwest Louisiana like “zydeco” while others were created out of parade traditions from New Orleans such as “second line”.
Story Circles bring people together in an equitable, collective experience to share their stories. It is a way of generating insight from personal and professional experience while creating a democratic atmosphere and a safe space for expression.
