Stone Soup Tribal Weekend (Kansas City, Missouri, USA)
April 6-7, 2019
What is Stone Soup? Stone Soup is a folktale about about the power of openness and collaboration where hungry travelers convince a village to come together, share bits and pieces of what they have, and ultimately enjoy an incredible meal together. The Stone Soup Tribal Weekend will honor that spirit, allowing each participant to explore and discover their own gifts and contributions to their personal dance practice, their troupe, and the dance community at large through dance and drumming workshops featuring Angie Never and Zach Beery of Sacred Shimmy Belly Dance, a performance and open dance/drum jam, and community building and fellowship.
