This new and innovative course experiments with and improves the fundamental practice of contemporary, lyrical, and open dance: improvisation.
Throughout the 12-weeks you will learn to break the boundaries of comfort and predictability, and you will dive into a world of free movement and improvisation.
You will be encouraged to develop individual and group movement pieces through a series of technical yet fun exercises and activities such as using verbal and physical cues and utilizing influences from different dance and music genres.
The aim of this course is for each unique student to harness their individual tools of creativity, imagination and instinct to explore a whole new non-structured realm of dance, one where your own mind and body can be in control, or out of control.
Some classical or practical dance training is recommended but not required.
