  • Contact Improvisation with Krista Denio

    This class proposes the inherent relationship between Composition and Contact Improvisation. We’ll begin with post-modern movement fundamentals, and a Body-Mind Centering® influenced approach to internal and external worlds. Then drawing on the vocabulary of time and space, through use of the Viewpoints and other compositional frameworks, we will explore choice-making within the micro and macro. From individual movement choices, to partnering work, and ensemble awareness of the whole room and relationships, we can broaden range and locate more diverse choice-making in the dance.

  • Hot Spot with Holly Johnston

    Together, we create an experience of dancing as a self-regulating system, mode and means of responding, communicating and expressing ourselves through movement. Your body is fully acknowledged as source and resource of limitless possibilities. It is in the flux between knowing and unknowing that our bodies respond as instinct in order to find ground(ing); it is in this borderland that body can be a great generator of creative energies. Integrating somatics, movement phrases and improvisation we will generate new patterns of moving-thinking that offer our bodies time-space to actualize, reorganize and transform through our inherent movement intelligence and personal physical volition.
