This Dance Teacher workshop will explore movement technique, vocabulary and choreographic tools over 2 days (Thursday, August 4 and Friday, August 5). The philosophy of the 2-day training is that every teacher needs to reinvigorate and reconnect with their body, their movement and their creative process. As a teaching artist, I am ALWAYS reinvesting in how and why I am… moving. In doing so, I am deepening and honing how I craft my dances, train my dancers, and clean the performance aesthetic of my dance and dancers. This 2-day workshop will help you reinvigorate and reconnect!
This 2-day workshop dives into the fundamentals of modern dance and how it relates to lyric, ballet, and contemporary dance. You walk away with:
• New Moves
• Creative Tools for choreography
• Transitions and Floor patterns
• Heightened training/awareness for cleaning and executing dance moves
