No Frills Dance Happening
This Friday, November 4th, at ZUZI! Theater
ZUZI! Dance Company, School & Theater, 738 N. 5th Ave., In The Historic Y, Tucson, AZ 85705
A variety of choreographers throughout Tucson and Southern Arizona come to share fresh and innovative works from various stages of the creative process. The works range from serious to silly and some are presented here for the first time. This year features choreographers from ZUZI!, Billbob Brown, MAC & Company, and others.
"The 'No Frills' concert has come to serve two important purposes," says ZUZI!'s Director of Arts Education, Nanette Robinson. "It has become a popular venue for showcasing youth performers, schools, and youth choreography and it continues to be venue for local choreographers to take creative risks with new work." The show has been described as an open mic for dance and is a unique opportunity to perform in a relaxed setting. As the name suggests, there are no frills-no fancy lights, no fancy sets-just dancers, choreographers, and experimentation.
No Frills Dance Happenin' will highlight both adult and youth choreographers and performers on Friday, November 4, at 7:30 PM in the ZUZI! Theater at the Historic Y at 738 N. 5th Avenue in Tucson. Tickets are just $10 and may be purchased online https://goo.gl/FdOVDq or at the door.

Lucid Body Movement Class with Nanette
Tuesday mornings at 11:00am - 12:15pm
Our Lucid Body Dance class involves movement rituals and studies rooted in Skinner releasing principles, images, improvisation and authentic movement. In this class we will look at the internal landscape of the body and how it relates to the external landscape of our world. We will move from a felt (kinesthetic) movement experience to be explored and expanded. There will be lots of breathe awareness and an opportunity for gentle hands on approaches to a spacious alignment, full of beauty and grace. Be prepared for some deep listening to the rhythms of the the body and playful, spontaneous explosions of movement.
Bring your curious self! Open to a new way of inhabiting your precious body. This class holds the space for nurturance in safety and trust.
