Modern Dance Technique: The workshop centers on the skeleton and key structural muscles that promote deep spinal support. Locating the body’s center of support increases the dancer’s range and ease of movement, eliminates the need for compensation, and allows for meaningful physical and emotional release.  Dance phrases will focus on further explorations into rhythm, balance, and weight, and using gravity to generate movement flow.  By utilizing proper breath, alignment, and momentum, students achieve a more compelling quality of presence, a deeper awareness of the body, and greater clarity in their use of space and time.


Composition: The workshop uses an improvisation-based approach to generate and explore gestures, developing them into movement sequences using repetition and variation. Structured either around props (including objects and furniture) or around everyday technologies (including cell phones and MP3 players), the class encourages students to explore their physical relationship to the props or technologies, using them as an extension of the body. In order to work in concert with the objects, the students‚ gestures and movements must adapt in unexpected ways. A similar workshop can be designed without props or technologies, or designed to accommodate the particular needs of the host organization
