Velocity Dance Center

Tuesdays from 4:30-6pm
January 6 - June 30, 2015
This class offers an approach to group improvisation with the studio as a site for the collaborative exchange of physical ideas. First, we encourage the expansion of individual movement vocabularies and their conscious arrangement.
Once dancers boost their own possibilities for movement invention with specificity, clarity, and craft, we move that attitude into group explorations, which amplify attention and awareness, illuminate the perception of composition, and then look at interaction as an opportunity to exponentially increase the inventiveness of the group compositional form as something that is simultaneously perceived and generated internally.
Choreographers, performers, and those with interests in emerging art forms are welcome!
