Dance Partnering Skills - Fridays @ 12-1pm

This class will explore different strategies and partnering techniques rooted in gender-neutral non-traditional partnering and contact improvisation. Participants will learn to use their body weight and skeletal structure strategically to sustain and build lifts, weight sharing movements, and partnering combinations. All experience levels, body types, genders, etc. welcome!

INSTRUCTOR: Amberly M. Simpson

LEVEL/AGE RANGE: All levels - Age 11 through adults

Dance Improvisation - Fridays @ 1-2pm

Much like actors can improvise a scene together, so can dancers collectively improvise a dance that looks choreographed right on the spot! This class places an emphasis on group compositional improvisation. Through games, activities, and scores, we'll learn strategies for connecting as an ensemble, building and structuring dance extemporaneously, and treating improvisation as performance.

INSTRUCTOR: Amberly M. Simpson
