Workshop Lead: Nickeshia Garrick

Join us for Monday Dancing at The Jamii Hub for a series of movement-based workshops led by Nickeshia Garrick, Jamii's lead artist for June!


The workshops offer a contemporary take on a fun-paced, Afro-Caribbean-influenced dance workshop that introduces polyrhythms, helping you understand the innate rhythms that flow within all of us. Participants work on small movement combos that will expand every week! ALL movers are welcome to this movement workshop, beginners and advanced!


Heads-up: We will be on a break in July and August. Jamii's indoor activities & workshop series will commence in September 2024.
