1239564_552213078165883_1974986185_nIn the past couple of years Tulsa has experienced a tremendous boom in class offerings for adult dancers and non-dancers looking to explore movement in new ways. It’s thrilling to know that on a given day I have not just one but sometimes more than one studio to land in. However! It can be a little tough keeping track of what’s happening when, so here you go: a list as comprehensive as I could compile of currently offered open-to-the-public classes, workshops, and the like for adult movers! Please don’t hesitate to contact me with anything else you know of going on, and I’ll add it to the list. See you out there!
