Pilobolus Workshops

Experience an internationally renowned dance company’s approach to movement and fitness through their wonderfully wild and imaginative eyes. Pilobolus, featured on CBS Sunday Morning, was founded fifty years ago by non-dancers who believed that everyone can access creativity and connect with their bodies through movement. Three outdoor classes on the Riverwalk Lawn led by Pilobolus Artistic Directors and Dancers apply a half century of techniques to playfully increasing your body’s capacity for mobility, stability and expression.
