This class will explore how dance interacts with other media, spaces, and conditions. Media could include clay, paint/drawing, newspaper, bubble wrap, and much more. We will also explore how different spaces (not just the stage) can inform how we dance. The class will experiment with improvisation and will have a few non-traditional performances throughout the five weeks which will challenge both performers and audience to experience dance in a new way. The class will also showcase work in the Dance Concert on Festival Day. Experienced and non-experienced dancers of all ages welcome!
This class will explore the concepts of force, space, shape, pattern, and time in individual and group movement.

Some concepts will be drawn from Laban and Mettler practices. Dance experience welcomed, but not necessary--just an open mind and a desire to move!
