PORT ANGELES — Alana Shaw, founder of the nonprofit Turning the Wheel dance-theater company of Boulder, Colo., is coming to Port Angeles to lead a playful evening of dance at Studio Bob this Friday.

Everyone is welcome, and no experience is necessary at this gathering, hosted by the Port Angeles Arts Council and Vickie Dodd of Sacred SoundWorks of Port Angeles.

Admission is free to Studio Bob, upstairs at 118 E. Front St., while donations to Turning the Wheel will be welcome.

“Come as you are; no experience necessary,” Dodd said.

Shaw, author of Dancing Our Way Home: A Guide to Improvising Through Life, Art & Performance, will lead a couple of hours of frolic, Dodd added.

It's a chance to “remember the joyful energy of collaborating with one another,” she said.

'Delicious fun'

Both Dodd and Diana Somerville, a local writer and activist, have worked with Shaw in Boulder.

“Dancing — or more accurately, moving and playing — in community with Alana and those of her Turning The Wheel gang is the most delicious fun,” Somerville said.

For more details, phone Sacred SoundWorks at 360-452-5922.
