Tandem Liability and Photo Release

Join us weekly throughout the summer to explore boundaries, create meaningful movement, and share knowledge with like-minded dancers. Immerse yourself in the creative process of making dances at Tandem Theatre and Dance's The Dance Lab. This experience is open to all who possess the desire to move and share movement. We hope to build a community of creative movers who value shared experiences and the passing on of traditions.

This is a self-directed experience. An open mind, and willingness to teach and learn from others will reward not only yourself but those around you and our greater community.  Tandem Theatre and Dance will produce a performance event to showcase the groups work on a monthly basis. Participation in the performance event is not mandatory.

Dance professional, Benjamin Rethmeier will be available to answer questions and provide support as needed during each event. Space is limited and you will be working in and around others at the same time. please reach out and email if you have any questions.

Registration options:


Choose this option if you want to participate in the creative process. You may set your own registration fee. If you are able to give then please do.
