This new dance theater piece "You Absolute Dreamer", inspired by F. Scott Fitzgerald's magnum opus The Great Gatsby, is the school's first project under their new name.
We will explore the power dynamic between audience and performer; how performers can be powerful before an audience, take ownership of one's impulses and learn to lead instead of follow.
Students will engage in the exploration of body awareness and discover what it means to dance. The class will apply the combination of technical proficiency and intention to choreographic material, Students will be asked to manipulate movement that is discovered or given to them by use of dynamics, weight, and time.
Dance + Summer Intensive 2014
A place where actors come to dance, dancers come to act and we learn that more understanding manufactures a truer outcome. Our focus is on the importance of being a well-rounded performer, finding creative movement, realizing self-awareness through specific acting and dance techniques and sharing our love for dance theater.
