Adult Improvisation Class: Sept. – Dec. 2017

These classes are designed to encourage movement expressions through improvisation techniques founded upon the free approach to dance and movement pioneered by Barbara Mettler (www.barbarbamettler.org).   Students will be guided through movement explorations to expand movement vocabulary and discover new ways to dance.   No prior dance experience needed.  Together we create an inclusive, participatory and collaborative environment where each dancer can contribute his/her unique creative energy to the group.

Choreography Lab: Sept. – Dec. 2017

An introductory class that introduces students to the principles and practices of creating dance choreography.  Students will generate movement using imagination through improvisation and source exploration; manipulation of movement; creation and performance of short movement studies; and observation, critical analysis, and self-reflection.  We will explore the elements of body, shape, space, and time; qualities of movement; principles of composition; and ways to modify movement phrases.  Let us create together!
