Free Family Mornings: Movement and dance for all bodies with artist group Physical Education

Saturday, April 13th, 2019 from 10am – 1pm

At Washington County Museum, located on the PCC Rock Creek Campus:

17677 NW Springville Rd., Portland, OR, 97229

Washington County Museum invites you to get physical!  As part of the Free Family Morning series, this fun and active body movement workshop is led by the Portland-based artist group Physical Education. Artists keyon gaskin, Allie Hankins, Lu Yim and Takahiro Yamamoto will share their love for movement and dance to help visitors celebrate their bodies and senses.

One of the fun exercises is Hankins’ TRANSCENDENTAEROBICOURAGE. “I will help visitors work individually and as a group to breathe, vocalize, bounce, sweat, push, rest and DANCE,” says Hankins, “helping them access the pleasure of effort.” Everyone can enjoy this lively event, all bodies welcome!

Physical Education’s vision is to offer people of all kinds ways to think about and enjoy art that uses movement and performance. PE knows that some folks may feel they don’t understand what a body in movement means, and they work to open up paths to understanding and question where that confusion may come from. Physical Education organizes and hosts reading groups, lectures, curated performances, aerobics/movement classes, and straight-up sweat-it-out dance parties.

Free Family Mornings is an ongoing series hosted by the Washington County Museum. Each month during the school year local artists lead family games and art projects. These workshops are drop-in with no registration required. Museum entrance is free during the event and families are welcome to visit all the exhibits. The Free Family Mornings series is supported in part by the Beaverton Rotary.
