One of the most widely known versions of Medusa’s story was written by Ovid more than two thousand years ago. What will happen if we tear up his pages, then turn those fragments into our own dance? In her workshop, Written By Our Bones, The Sonoma Community Center’s resident dance artist, Jessica Fudim, guides a process of retelling the Medusa myth through movement explorations. 

Participants of all abilities are welcome (no dance training required) at this two-hour workshop that plays with movement invention, dance-making, and the malleability of authorship. 

Please dress in comfortable layers.

When you register for a class, you’ll be offered three price tiers. The middle tier comes closest to what our registration fees used to be, and covers about 50% of the full cost of your participation in the class – with the other 50% covered by community donations. The first tier creates accessibility for people with limited income, while the third tier covers the full cost of participation – so that we can use community donations to support other people’s registration costs. When you choose to register at the third tier, you directly help support the Center’s efforts to remove financial barriers for others.

The Sonoma Community Center (the Center) strives to create an inclusive, safe community where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. The Center is committed to creating such an environment because it brings out the fullest potential in each of us, which, in turn, contributes directly to creating a community of belonging.
