Asheville-based Community Choreography Projects presents “Creating Your Legacy Through Movement and Story,” a 9-week movement theater workshop. People of all experience levels are invited to join Artistic Director Barrie Barton to discover and clarify their legacy -- past, present and future. Participants will engage in expressive activities using movement, story, writing and art. The Legacy workshop culminates with a collaborative, community-based movement-theater piece to be performed for friends and family on Sunday, May 4.

Barrie states, “our lives are shaped by those who leave us as well as by those who stay. And we influence other’s lives in both subtle and life-altering ways.” The workshop invites participants to creatively engage with their rich ancestral history and present day influences.

Former cast member Karen Beijer says, participating in one of these workshops was “one of the most fulfilling, powerful, moving, touching, community-filled, fun, creative, experiences I have ever been involved in.”

Class meets at Jubilee! Community, 46 Wall St. in Asheville, from 6-8pm.

Course fee: $125. Participants can attend a sample first session for $15.
