Soirée 2020

Soirée 2020

In these challenging times, we’re incredibly heartened by the community surrounding Frame Dance. Together, we know we can accomplish anything. Even COVID-19 can’t stop our mission to give the people of Houston a physical, intellectual, and spiritual connection to themselves and each other, offering a safe place to explore creativity and experience challenging, artful, and undiluted modern dance.
Our annual fundraiser was scheduled for June 18, and we are hoping to move the event to October 15, 2020 if it is safe for us to gather together. If you would like to be a part of the event, please reach out at anytime. We would be honored if you’d consider helping us out from the safety and comfort of your home. Donations can be made here: Donate to Frame Dance.

Summer Book Club 2020

Summer Book Club 2020

All it takes to make creativity a part of your life is the willingness to make it a habit. It is the product of preparation and effort, and is within reach of everyone. Whether you are a painter, musician, businessperson, or simply an individual yearning to put your creativity to use, The Creative Habit provides you with thirty-two practical exercises based on the lessons Twyla Tharp has learned in her remarkable thirty-five-year career.
Spaces for the book club have all been filled, but you can get your name on the waiting list by filling out the form here: Get on the Waiting List

Camp in a Box

Camp in a Box

Event Phone: 832-781-0808

Frame Dance Summer Camp, Camp in a Box, is a mystery box of activities and instruction designed to be fun, creative, active, and to include limited screen time. Each morning, campers will meet for one 40 minute live Zoom class in either dance, visual arts, or music. Each day, from their mystery boxes, children will open a new envelope filled with supplies for creative activities to be done at your own pace. At the end of the week, all campers will gather on Zoom for a “Show Off Lunch” to present their work from the week and share lunchtime together.

If you have multiple children who would like to enroll, please choose the Family Box. We will customize for the number of children and their ages.

These camps are accessible for all ages, but are geared toward 3-5 year olds (Wiggle Worms) and 6-9 year olds (Leaping Lizards).

 

Camp Dates:

  • Wiggle Worms Camp in a Box (ages 3-5 years): July 6-10, 2020
  • Leaping Lizards Camp in a Box (ages 6-9 years): July 13-17, 2020

If you don’t live in Houston but would like to participate, please contact us for details.

Please register by June 19, 2020 to give our staff time to assemble your boxes.

Details for picking up your camp box will be emailed to you after your purchase.
