DANCE LAB is a community movement class! That means we're coming together to collaborate on learning movement techniques that work for us, for you, and everywhere between! We invite dancers, actors, artists, teachers, mothers, daughters, Facebook scrollers, and Netflix-and-chill-ers alike to join us for our 5 class series. Our goal in this series is to inspire everyone to connect, communicate, and collaborate with those around you with confidence and joy. Come join the VGDT fam and share a safe space for creation and collaboration with us! We promise you'll have a very good time!

it's my party, and u can cry if u want to
December 5th-18th @ 8PM
(sliding scale from $15-$30)

it's my party, and u can cry if u want to is a community remembering, reliving, and reimagining of gatherings from our past, present, and hopeful future. In this (COVID-conscious) interactive and experiential dance theatre performance the audience is invited to share a memory, join a dance, cry, laugh, and cry again with us, as we all ask: who do we share our lives with and why.

Come share the stage with us and start our residency off with a bang! This night will feature performances from our collaborators past, present, and (hopefully) future... that means you! We're looking for short acts of all kinds (uh, except scary ones dangerous ones, like drunk texting your ex) to take the stage and join the VGDT family. Come to laugh, cry, sing, and/or dance your heart out and find out how we plan to bring community, collaboration, and cool dance theatre to Oak Cliff!
