Master class facilitators, Sharon Bridgforth and Omi Osun Joni Jones, believe in the power of the body
to say what words do not, and the power of words to guide us to our most courageous selves. For them,
our stories and our bodies reveal our deepest humanity, power, and joy.

Using the principles of theatrical jazz—being present, improvisation, solo virtuosity, ensemble-building—
Jones and Bridgforth guide participants through a series of practices designed to strengthen authenticity
and selfhood. Through movement, truth-telling, and collaboration, this workshop explores the themes of
vulnerability, life challenges, embodied stories, family history, and intention.
