Classes 10:00 am – 11:30 am, creative development 11:30 – 1:00
Members of Momentum Dance Collective, MDC, will teach classes in Homer to explore a variety of movement styles with the intention of expanding dance vocabulary and confidence. This project includes classes, creative development, and performance opportunities for dancers 14 and up. Dancers can participate in one or all aspects of the project. MDC’s core values are rooted in the collaborative approach. Through their work, they create opportunities for public ‘interventions’ of artistic expression; Tiny Dances will showcase the culmination of this project.
Starting on the floor and working our way to the vertical, this class will explore principles of modern dance like breath, suspension, weight, opposition, and spirals. Throughout, we will focus on finding a unique sense of mobility and openness in order to move in bigger and more interesting ways. Loosely based in technique, we'll work together to find distinct ways of moving and digesting phrasework that feel good in our own bodies. Come ready to move – we'll work the winter out of your bones and get your blood pumping!
Creative development time will take place directly after class. Participants will work together exploring various phrases and structural development. Studies will have the opportunity to be presented at Tiny Dances informal performance on February 22, 23 alongside MDC pieces.
