A one week intensive class for those at an intermediate to advanced level.
Sampling the obligations of a dance company life, five hours daily include:
1) Company class, ballet/contemporary.
2) Seminar/mentorship, everything from brown bag Q+A and pre/post performance somatic strategies to movement research practices such as How to Dance Forever.
3) Rehearsal, where either an existing work is reset, a new work by the choreographer is made, or a new work generated by the ensemble is made.
The goal is to expose dancers to a company paradigm, to note the differences between Hubbard Street rep-company, Pascal Rioult single-choreographer, and Gallim Dance Company where the ensemble-as-creators generates the choreography.
Intensive culminates in a final day open house to observe company class, a brown bag Q+A for parents and friends and an open rehearsal/showing.
