This workshop offers you practices to tap into your joy. Sydnie and SLMDances will share their practices of "joy at all costs" as a balm and a catalyst. Through games, movement, and other technologies, we will honor where joy resides in our bodies and our lives and how we can use this as a tool to shape the future.
