There’s a new class in town!
Taught by Nona Narcisse, Grounded in Joy is a five week series that will dive deeper into what can give a performance that “je ne sais quoi”; a potent quality that cannot be described or named easily. There is a unique, joyful edge that only you can bring to the world’s stage…and the world needs your gifts, art and enjoyment now more than ever! Learn fun and indulgent choreography to present as a group number at Tease: A Burlesque Revue on Oct 21st at The Space.
Nona Narcisse has been trained in several different dance modalities, including ballet, modern, belly dance and African dance. She has theater, clown and mime training from the lauded Celebration Barn Theater. She has worked with celebrated musicians including The Cab Calloway Jazz Orchestra, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Reba McEntire, George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic and has been hired to travel as far as The Ascona, Switzerland Jazz Festival to perform.
