I am looking forward to teaching at the Greenwich Arts Council for the Moving Arts Collaborative (a multi-generational dance group) directed by the amazing Meryl Green.... in September.... Here is a photo from one of their classes.... Beautiful!
On September 21st, I'm excited to have Ellie Leonhardt coming to be a Guest Teacher. Here's some info about her and what she'll be doing with us...
Ellie Leonhardt, MFA, BA, is a Lecturer of Dance at the University of North Texas. Contact Improvisation, the Erick Hawkins Modern Dance Technique, YogaLink, and Authentic Movement are some of the movement forms that have influenced Ellie's pedagogy and movement vocabulary. She will be in New York the week she comes to us mainly to perform in the Dumbo Dance Festival on Saturday, September 25th at 6:00 p.m. and Sunday the 26th at 4:00 p.m.
Authentic Movement is a physical practice, a contemplative form, and a developmental tool for self-transformation whereby we gain access to personal movement material and inner knowing. It is this inner exploration that allows one to express a somatic reality that can inspire creative process and choreography. In this workshop, an overview of AM forms will be explored including moving spontaneously from outer and inner impulse, traditional dyad form and the long circle form. There will be time for writing, drawing, reflection and sharing.
