Joe’s Movement Emporium will provide arts education opportunities for children enjoying the Gateway Open Studios Tour on Saturday, May 14th. Joe’s art education staff will provide movement and visual arts activities throughout the day. One of Joe’s resident artist companies, UpSpring Studio, will host a variety of aerial demonstrations and opportunities to try the aerial experience in the lobby. All activities are completely free and require no RSVP or reservation.
Aerial demonstrations every hour on the hour showcase how high our dancers can fly. Aerial students will give mini talks and presentations about how they discovered the art form and even give away some behind the scenes tricks of the trade.
