We strive at Breadcrumbs to support our local artistic community, both through providing a platform for local artists to share their skills with others, as well as by providing opportunities to local artists to improve themselves through various courses offered by people both locally and from abroad. We recognize that we can grow as a community both by teaching each other, and by learning from each other!
ADUL T MODERN DANCE
Saturdays at SaltSpace from 11am - 1pm
November 2nd - December 7th
Maya June Dwyer returns to SaltSpace on Saturday mornings for a new six-week class based on nontraditional movement techniques from post-modern dance and contemporary physical theatre practices. Having just returned from studying with The Hofesh Shechter Company and Punchdrunk in London, as well as touring and training with Rochester-based PUSH Physical Theatre, Maya will lead a class based on a blend of vocabularies which reach outside of inherited dance tradition.
Classes will consist of a mental and physical warmup, generative choreographic exercises, improvisation, and choreographed phrasework. New to this six-week session is a two-hour structure: the first hour will consist of a mental and physical warm-up, improvisational exercises and exploration, and learning simple combinations. The second hour will build to a sharper focus on learning expanded strings of material. All levels are welcome to stay for one or both sessions. All people with bodies are invited to come and challenge the given stereotypes about what dance and dancers are, and seize their freedom of expression through movement.
