Presented by Karen Kirsch, Somatic Movement Therapist
One of the most cutting-edge dancers and choreographers of the
20th century was born and raised right here in Centralia. Join us to learn more
about the man who influenced the world of dance for seven decades with continuous
innovation and a devotion to the moving body.
The humble study of tap dancing in his hometown ignited
Cunningham’s passion for dance, excitement of the moving body, and fierce
dedication to creating beyond convention. His commitment to and love of dance
led him to say, "Dancing is a spiritual exercise in a physical form."
In this presentation, we will explore why this man was so influential in 20th
century Modern Dance.

These monthly, free events are open to everyone interested in Oregon and Pacific Northwest history. Co-sponsored by like-minded historical and civic organizations, we bring you experts, scholars, first-person experiencers and historians who expound on topics from Lewis and Clark to shipwrecks, hop growing to women pioneers and far, far beyond. It's like being back in the classroom - except this time you get to settle into comfortable seats and enjoy a drink or two with dinner while you listen and learn.
This event is eligible for a History Pub Stamp
