Our time together will be rooted in positive reinforcement, exciting challenges and shedding perfectionism for curiosity and imaginative play. Join us for a week of inspired, joyous and shared dancing!

A bilingual adaptation of one of Shakespeare’s most cherished works, Romeo y Juliet recounts the tale of two star-crossed lovers, daughters from the feuding houses of Capulet and Montague, reimagined in Alta, California in the 1840’s prior to the annexation of California to the United States. Set in the limbo between Mexican rule and new statehood, this retelling shifts between English and Spanish, bringing new life to a well-loved tale of love, bloodshed, family and fate.

Cavale has kidnapped Slim. Somewhere along the way, Slim has fallen deeply in love with her. Or, at the very least, he has a deep lust for her. Held captive by a .45 in a seedy motel and doped up on drugs, they converse, fight and love. As they rot away together in their equal misery and desire, they call up an illusive anthropomorphic Lobsterman to pass the time.
