Sunday, June 26: 12:30-2:30 pm: Dynamic Improvisation

This workshop focuses on strategies for improvised dance. Participants will explore the power of stillness and engage in a practice of dynamic movement sequencing, spacing, phrasing, and shape shifting. This workshop is experiential and challenges the dancer to play between the extremes of slow and fast, small and big, sharp and smooth.  
Skill level: Intermediate and above.
