This is a class designed to approach dynamic movement practices that support the development of personal training, personal care and individual artistry. This class will focus on exercises for strength training and functional movement patterning, tools for encountering aesthetics inside of phrase work and how to distribute force when moving into and out of the floor. This class is a space for considering how movement, perception, sensation and ideas of self all fold into the rituals of a dance class.

HORIZONTAL STRATEGIES FOR VERTICAL LIVES - CREATING A PERSONAL WARM-UP (WORKSHOP)

This is a class combines tools from Pilates mat repertory, yoga and various other somatic and energetic modalities to offset chronic pain and injuries. Utilizing partnering work and everyday props, we will focus on supportive alignment and strength training, making necessary connections for creating a personalized somatic practice that can be integrated into daily routine for self-care.


OTHER REALITIES - WRITING + PHOTOGRAPHY AS CHOREOGRAPHIC PRACTICE (WORKSHOP)

Create a self made “mood board” for a choreographed work. Pulling from practices in image taking (smart phone, digital camera), collage and creative writing, this workshop focuses on the associative rigor of not only pulling together an array of source material to generate atmosphere for a choreographed work, but with a DIY approach. Inspired by “parallel play,” this workshop develops ideas and proposals for choreography by diverting attention, for a short time, into a realm of assembling and distilling images, colors, words and textures. During this workshop, participants will expand on practices of image taking and drawing and writing, pulling that content together and constructing it into a performance collage.
