Encounter Dance for a day!
Mix up your dancing DNA!
Here in Nova Scotia, we all love dancing: Tango, Swing Dance, Break, Capoeira. There's Old Tyme Dancin', Social Dancing, Contact Improvisation, and just plain dancing all night.
Here’s your chance to take your dancing to a new level:
Warm-up your body with Pilates, Laban Movement Analysis, and Gyrokinesis. We’ll work on partnering, lifting, leaning, falling, catching, pushing, pulling, and flying to create our own improvisation score.
Then, if you’re up for it, take your improv to the stage that night and join Cook and Shute in a very special performance: Blind Date.
Here’s the schedule:
Saturday July 30, 2011
Workshop, 10 am—1 pm
Rehearsal, 5 pm—7 pm
It’s intense, but you’ll love it! And when else are you going to do a workshop in the morning and perform your own work that evening?
Susan Cook is a graduate of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, professional dancer, certified Stott Pilates & Gyrokinesis teacher, and a passionate student of Capoeira.
Mac Shute holds a Master of Fine Arts in Dance with a concentration in choreography from the University of Maryland. He is a Certified Movement Analyst through the Laban/Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies. Shute teaches choreography and writing at the Towson University BFA Dance Program.
Cost for workshop and performance: $20. Pay at the door.
