WORKSHOP: No Diagram Anatomy for Dancers in the Dark Room (beginning November 13)

Dark Room Ballet presents:

Image Description: This is a black vinyl tote bag. On the
front of the bag, there is an orange square that frames the words in all
caps: AIR BETWEEN MY VERTEBRAE. Right underneath the words, there is an
image of part of a curving spine. The square, words, and spine detail
are made of an orange, flock vinyl material that has a soft velvet,
fuzzy feel.
