Dance like Picasso's watching.

On Wednesdays in January, Art Gallery of NSW is inviting you to kick off your work boots and slip into your dancing shoes, with a series of free dance workshops taking place as part of Art After Hours. Inspired by the revolutionary spirit of the Masters of Modern Art exhibition, the movement sessions will help you start your year on the right foot (or two left feet, depending on your dance skills).
Led by Danielle Micich, artistic director of dance theatre company Force Majeure, each of the four mass movement workshops embody the spirit of a different art period. You can throw down your most jagged, geometric shapes for the cubism-inspired workshop or channel the vibrant energy of renegade Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky in the abstract-themed class (we assume the more eccentric the moves, the better). Art, dance, music, fun, you get the picture. Heck, you'll dance the picture.
The workshops run from 6.30–7pm, so you'll still have time to treat your newly limber self to a drink, visit the Masters of Modern Art exhibition and check out the rest of that evening's Art After Hours program. It's a great first date — nothing breaks the ice like watching someone try to dance 'Picasso' — or bring a few colleagues and take after-work drinks to a whole new level.
Dance Workshops: Modern Art Movements will take place January 9, 16, 23 and 30, 6.30–7pm.
