Technique class begins with a warm-up that focuses on skeletal connectivity as a tool for movement initiation and phrasing. Blending somatic awareness and contemporary technique, students learn to expand on ideas of spatial intelligence, rhythm, and sequential movement. Each class builds in momentum and ends by using phrase work to propel through the space changing directions, levels, and timings.
The company's technique classes encourage students to go beyond their physical centers and experience more freedom and daring in their dancing.
Current class schedule
Movement Composition workshops
Movement composition workshops give students experience with Shaun Keylock's unique approach to choreography and dance making. Complex phrasework is developed in collaboration with participants through the use of imagery and various movement tasks. This phrase material is then deconstructed into accessible components and rebuilt with emphasis on choreographic potential.
Through the continuous construction and de-construction of the choreographic process, students are provided with various thinking tools for their own work as dancers and dance makers.
