Limited to five participants per session.

Choreographer/Teacher Carrie Ahern is the facilitator of the participatory workshop, THE ART OF BURIAL. The artistic director and choreographer of non-profit dance company Present Pariah in NYC, she has facilitated six THE ART OF BURIAL workshops in NYC, one each in Oakland, Berkeley and Seattle.
