This new workshop series introduces teens to the studio practice of dance in the areas of ballet, modern/contemporary and West African funk. Students will learn the fundamentals of a healthy dance practice while pushing beyond their own limitations. Workshops are intended for teens ages 11-15.
Designed especially for non-dancers, the four Absolute Beginner workshops introduce the basics of ballet, jazz, modern and hip-hop. Experience the joy of motion and musicality while improving strength and flexibility.
The series explores choreographic innovations as well as technical traditions, with the intention of encouraging artistic risk-taking, expanding versatility, and enhancing performance qualities. Classes are intended for the advanced and professional dancer.
Over an eight-week period, students work intimately with Bay Area choreographers to gain insight into the choreographic process through creation and performance. Each workshop culminates in a free, public showing.
These classes use various physical methods, such as Feldenkrais®, to increase body awareness and explore movement potential. Participants will discover habitual patterns while exploring new options for increased comfort and efficiency in breath and motion.
