Arbor Cafe, 42nd & Telegraph Ave, Oakland

Choreographers Have Coffee was spawned over in SF by Charles Slender-White and Liz Tenuto, now its coming to the East Bay hosted by Kristin Damrow. This come-when-you-are-free meet up is a chance for choreographers to get caffeinated and engage in conversation about ideas, struggles, discoveries, road blocks and hell yes moments we face. But most importantly this offers us a place outside the studio or theater where we can stay involved in each others work and offer support to the community.
