IMPROVISATION/ CO-CONSTRUCTION: This class investigates the art and process of spontaneous ensemble-based performance making, tuning attention to the poetic effect of compositional choices: creative impulses, following intuition, collaborative processing, and the negotiated presence in spontaneous performance and invention.
MODERN TECHNIQUE: An amalgamation of technical, somatic, and functional principles, Modern technique classes are an eclectic composite of in-class activities that put the body in complex, challenging situations so that students may exercise their physical intelligence and dynamism necessary for contemporary dance practitioners.
SOUND & BODY: This workshop explores the integration of movement and sound (vocalization, text, song) through varied structured improvisational and compositional activities.
YOGA: Classes are a slow flow Vinyasa-based style that integrates imagery, functional anatomy, and other somatic considerations to allow students to fully enter an embodied state, cultivating a greater connection to and understanding of their bodies.
FUNCTIONAL BODY: Part corrective and part exploratory, this class/worksop combines elements of functional training exercises, yoga, as well as other somatic and physical considerations in efforts to achieve better in-bodied wellbeing and self-use.
RANGE/SHIFT: Using set movement patterns as templates for functional, dynamic, and performative research, Range/Shift is a practicum where participants play with ways of doing/ ways of being as a mode of physical practice. In-class activities consist of experiential/experimental, improvisatorial, and sequenced movement exercises to test and practice students' physical and qualitative range.
