Event Phone: (346) 708-1555

CAMHLAB artists-in-residence Frame Dance create The Family Mantra, a multigenerational performance that explores generational changes in perspective, language, and behavior happening in the Houston community. The dance group will create an interactive environment with marbles, toy tops, pathways on the floor, pipe cleaner dolls to manipulate, and puppets within the space at Montrose Collective. Frame Dance will host Family Dance Parties, structured dance classes for all generations with lots of open-ended movement prompts that build bonds and promote creativity.
