Salsa ASL Workshop
Join Harvard Dance Center for an unconventional blending of Salsa dance with American Sign Language (ASL), taught by Kerry Thompson Ed.M. ’08! Learn the basic concepts of Salsa dance while also learning basic ASL phrases to use on and off the dance floor. Kerry Thompson, a renowned salsa dancer who is DeafBlind herself, will offer insights into how people who are Deaf can “hear” the music; how blind people can “see” the dance; how experienced dancers can use sign language to improve their craft; and how dance can create a more inclusive society.
The class is open for all levels and abilities and no Salsa or ASL experience is required. Even those with dance or ASL experience will come away learning something new. Participants must be age 18 or over.
Participation is free, but due to limited class capacity, online registration is required for both participants and observers.
