Acting for Dancers

Presented by Ormao Dance Company at Ormao Dance Company

As dancers, we use our bodies to communicate.

But sometimes, we get hung up on looking perfect and doing the “right” steps. We are also often taught to remain silent.

In this class, we will use principles of drama to play with all facets of expression, including things silly, outrageous, ugly, and ridiculous.

Using a variety of techniques including theatre games, improvisation, and scene building, we will work on storytelling, freeing our bodies and voices, enhancing group cohesion, and building character.

In the latter part of the workshop, we will use these skills to create, cast, rehearse, and perform an original fairy tale.

Throughout the week, we will consider how this freedom of expression can make us better dancers.
