Dance Canvas returns to Atlanta Contemporary on Thursday March 7th for another ‘Figures in Motion’. This time, we welcome back dancer/choreographer, Billy Hawkains III, who will be joined by dancer Samar Smith. Billy and Samar will move through the space, rehearsing a new work by New Jersey based choreographer, Mamiko Usuda. They will also take participants through their own movement and choreography through guided improvisation, a perfect opportunity to draw these Figures in Motion.

Beginning at 6:30 pm in the main gallery. Space is limited so make sure to register for your spot.

This event is BYOAS (bring your own art supplies); pencil, charcoal, and sketch pad recommended. Paint will not be allowed in the galleries. Atlanta Contemporary will not be providing art supplies for the event.
