Extreme Extremities

Heads or Tails? Arms or Legs? A class to append our appendages. Reaching, spiraling, connecting... Often we look for partners to make first contact with, yet here we have six willing partners to explore with, give our weight to, lift, levy and lead. Then with this information we can approach others with our brand new cutting-edge state-of-the-art tentacles! So brace yourself for excitement, armed with enthusiasm and... go out on a limb with me!
