Welcome to Intermediate Dance Theory and Technique (Winter 2014)
I am excited to get to know you over the next several weeks. This class is somewhat of an overview of somatic practices interfaced within a technical dance class. These introductory lessons into worlds of learning that each somatic idea can provide may seem overwhelming at times and difficult to process but I ask that you allow it so soak through rather than trying to learn and know everything – this is impossible in 10 weeks. Instead, I want you to look for ways to integrate the principles of each topic, however small the effort may seem, into all other aspects of your artistic/creative life. This class will center around a technical practice, an awareness of yourself through movement and an accumulation of ideas and imagery. You will be challenged in a different way, perhaps in terms of undoing, re-patterning and through profound inquiry.
I hope you will enjoy getting lost with me and finding out more about ourselves in the process…
See you on Tuesday. My office hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays 2:00-3:15 pm (by appointment). You may also schedule an appointment to meet in person outside of these hours. My office is in the Theater Arts Complex J-14.
All the best,
