Program

Students will create their personal dance signature as they explore the elements of dance. This workshop integrates the creative use of the dance elements - space, time and energy - with exercises for strength and stretch and emphasizes originality and clarity of intent. Students learn how they connect with movement in a personal way through guided improvisation and modern dance techniques using diverse music. Each dance signature may incorporate elements of the student's background or focus on expressing a feeling. Or perhaps it will emphasize a specific dance move such as an exuberant jump and twirl or a soft flowing descent onto the floor. The students will learn a warm-up that includes a range of dynamics and traveling steps in floor patterns. Teachers will be given an 'assignment' so they can continue the work in future dance classes. Two professional dancers teach the workshop which will be appropriate to high school grade level and previous background of the class.
