APRIL BREAK is right around the corner…
And we are holding a mini-intensive that will keep you in shape – creatively AND physically!
We invite you to join us for a 3 day contemporary dance creation workshop for dancers age 9 and up (including adults!)
Dates & Times:
Monday, April 16th: 9am-2pm
Tuesday, April 17th: 9am-2pm
Wednesday, April 18th: 9am-6pm (this includes an informal studio showing that is open to the public)
Each day will be structured as follows
We will begin the day with an hour-long improv-based warm up where students will explore different ways of moving and expand their physical limits.
The second hour will consist of a choreography and composition class where dancers learn choreographic tools and methods.
We will have a snack/lunch break during which time we will show videos of work by some of the greatest contemporary choreographers of today.
Students will work individually AND as a group to create a dance that will be shown on the last day. This time will include a showing and feedback session so that we can develop ways of seeing and talking about dance in a constructive and supportive way.
On Wednesday, April 18th we will have the regular schedule with the following additions:
Snack break and planning session with costume prep.
Informal studio showing for parents and friends.
