The Whole Shebang is a new South Philly creative hub that offers classes, workshops and studio rental. Class offerings will represent a wide range of artmaking, from movement practices to herbalism to interdisciplinary arts. Shebang is co-founded by dance artist Meg Foley and visual artist Carmichael Jones and is home to Foley’s dance think tank moving parts and to private artist studios. A goal of The Whole Shebang is to employ teachers who are also artists to help keep the vibrant artistic community of Philadelphia fertile.
Classes currently offered include an African Movement Diaspora Series, Barre Fitness, Anti-Absolutist Yoga, Developmental Movement and much much more. We will also be hosting a range of international dance artists to teach/create in our space. Their works will be presented in a series of three performances during the spring, so keep your eyes peeled for more details about that!
