Southeastern Louisiana University’s Moxie Dance Project is sponsoring “A Day of Master Classes,” to promote a positive self-image and to raise awareness of eating disorders Saturday. Scheduled from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on SLU’s main campus in the Kinesiology and Health Studies Building, Room 153, the event consists of three master classes in the styles of Broadway jazz, contemporary/lyrical and Zumba. The classes are open to students 12 and up, and registration is $20.
SLU students Sarah Gregoire, of Baton Rouge, and Amanda Tracy, of Denham Springs, and alumnus Alyssa DiMarco, of Marrero, will teach the classes.
“A Day of Master Classes” is a fundraiser to benefit Project Heal, a nationally recognized nonprofit organization, said Tracy, Moxie Dance Project member and event organizer.
“All the proceeds will go to Project Heal to fund treatment scholarships for those who cannot afford treatment,” Tracy said. “The Zumba class will be toward the end of the event, so those who can’t dance can still participate through Zumba. Please arrive early in order to register and come ready to have fun while supporting a great cause.
“I hope through the art of dance that each participant of the event walks away with the knowledge that worth and value are not dictated by size or weight but by each person’s uniqueness of who they are.”
