Dance:Found 2014-15 Workshops

Note: The workshops begin the process of preparing a work for the Dance:Found final performance on March 14, 2015. Workshop students aren't required to perform - but for most students, putting the work on stage is the perfect way to culminate the workshop experience. After each workshop ends, weekly rehearsals will continue in the same time slot as the workshop was held, so if you want to perform the finished work in March please plan on attending rehearsals through January and February.

Contemporary Repertory Workshop with Patrick Mueller
Tuesdays 7:45 - 9pm, October 21 - December 2. Participate in the creation of a new dance! In a collaborative process with instructor Patrick Mueller, we'll work through personal assignments to create a work in the dance-theatre style. The process involves a lot of personal coaching and individual challenge. The theme of the work will develop in dialog with participants, looking for common threads within individual experiences. The resulting work will be performed at the Dance:Found 2015 performances on March 7-8.
$85 for workshop (registration required, no drop-ins)

Classical Repertory Workshop with Karen Shanley
Sundays 11:30am - 1:30pm, October 12 – November 16. Deepen your dance abilities and knowledge by learning variations in the style of ballet classics! This year's project is  "Americana" – introducing students to 20th century American choreographers’ new approaches in themes, styling, and movement vocabulary. Ballets such as Rodeo (Agnes DeMille), Western Symphony (George Balanchine), Fancy Free (Jerome Robbins), and Deuce Coupe (Twyla Tharp) created their own “American” vocabulary to reflect the times and energy of our country. From gunslingin' showdowns to the Beach Boys, "Americana" promises to be a rousing ode to our nation's rich ballet history. Each session will begin with a warm-up and then move into “rehearsal” mode. The resulting work will be performed at the Dance:Found 2015 performances on March 7-8.
$120 for workshop (registration required, no drop-ins)
