Everybody MOVES – NEW SESSION

Recurring event see all

May 8 @ 4:00 pm 5:00 pm PDT

EveryBODY Moves is a NEW class for 10-14 year olds. Sessions will include focus on ballet, yoga/strength building, Contemporary Release technique and physical theater.  Students are encouraged to sign up for both sessions to try out new movement forms.

Session 2: $96 – Contemporary Release & Physical Theater/body-stories with Lisa Townsend

April 3 – May 29 (No class April 10)

The Contemporary Release class is designed for students to discover new pathways of movement emphasizing dynamic physicality, choreography, musicality and creative expression. Students will develop their physical strength, flexibility, coordination, and ability to learn dance choreography with ease. Simple movement phrases, focusing on warming, stretching & strengthening will grow into longer dance phrases moving boldly across the space.  Paced to a varied musical playlist, students will also explore dance improvisation, building a strong foundation and body awareness for any kind of dance. 

Physical Theater/body-stories is the practice of telling stories through physical expression. Students will learn improvisational theater games/exercises and techniques for voice, movement and imagination while working together and building an ensemble. Using various source material (i.e. written text, photographs, spoken word) and exploring imagery, gesture, & abstraction with time, shape, space and kinesthetic response, students will begin to create characters and tell stories through physical expression; possibly creating a role(s) for a short piece to share in solos, pairs or groups.
