Cute AnimalsA practice and performance project with dogs & owners.

VIDEO: Watch Cute Animals in action!

At the dog park, most people know the names of the dogs, but not the name of dog’s owner.  Participate along with a casual community of animal lovers and spark a connection with those who share a common interest. We are looking for dogs and owners from the Duke Street dog park, from Homeward Trails Animal Rescue, Charles Beatley Library’s PAWS reading program, Alexandria Animal Welfare League at Vola Lawson Animal Shelter and for anyone else in the neighboring area.  It is free to participate at any or all of the Monday night practices: Aug 18, 25 & Sept 8 at 6:30 with a performance on Sept 10 at 7 pm at Beatley Library, 5005 Duke Street, Alexandria – meet on the lawn to the right and around the building from the parking lot.  To participate, call 703-933-1111 or email this fill-in form – Cute Animals Registration - back to us at  janefranklindance at gmail.com.

Stop, Drop & Roll

A practice and performance project for two groups in an opposing structure of athletic-inspired movement!  Have you ever gone to a ball game and marveled at the timing and chance moments of teamwork?  Take part in creating a movement plan that explores competition and random opposition. It is free to participate at the Monday night practices: Sept 15 and 22 at 6:30 pm with a performance on Sept 24 at 7 pm at Beatley Library, 5005 Duke Street, Alexandria.  To participate, call 703-933-1111 or email this fill-in form – Stop, Drop & Roll Registration- back to us at  janefranklindance at gmail.com.
