The Graf Sisters' Workshop Is BACK

June 1, 2014

Remember about a year ago, when we introduced you to the D(n)A Arts Collective? At that point it was a brand-new group founded by two extraordinary sisters: Alicia Graf Mack, one of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s brightest stars, and Daisha Graf, a successful commercial dancer and MBK/Epic Records recording artist. They’d just put together a one-day “Made to Move” workshop featuring artists from both of their very different, and equally amazing, worlds.

Well, good news, everyone: The “Made to Move” workshop is back this year—and it’s newly improved. This time around, there’ll be sessions for two different age groups, 11–15 and 16–adult. And the instructor lineup is seriously impressive. In addition to Alicia and Daisha, classes will be led by Ailey legend Renee Robinson, renowned choreographer Ronald K. Brown, hip hop superstar Luam Keflezgy, and voice teacher Ankh Ra Amenhetep (yup, you’ll be singing, too!).

The intensive will be held on Saturday, August 30th, at New York City Center Studios in NYC. Registration just opened—get on it! And while you’re waiting for August to roll around, take a look at the workshop’s promo video, packed with footage from last year’s event.
