In homage to one of FLOCK member Allie Hankins' favorite obsessions, dancer Vaslav Nijinksy, she will be leading an dance aerobics class inspired his catastrophically radical 1913 ballet, Rite of Spring, which embraced dissonance and eccentricity, and riotously queered ballet as we know it. Through its imagined rituals and earthbound and weighted movements, Nijinksy composed the perfect conditions for corporeal transcendence. This is the juncture we will build upon. RITE OF SPRING will be a breathless and sweaty celebration of the collective act of DANCING with each other, with ourselves, with our queerness and our strength. Having a body is a precious and precarious thing, and we revel in all its beauty, awkwardness, and resilience! NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!
