CENTER OF GRAVITY
Power and freedom in movement emerges from having a calm and grounded center. A dancer who has mastery of their center of gravity is able to move through space effortlessly, to stop on a dime, and change momentum with ease. Kami will lead exercises to help strengthen and move from the core, to challenge your balance and move through floor work without fear in order to find a wide spectrum of expression. Knee pads, dance shoes/socks are suggested but not required.
This is a condensed version of a full week-long intensive that Kami Liddle has developed called Conception that is part of her program Krysalis (Conception will be offered in 2019). These classes are designed for dancers exploring their own personal styles and to help give inspiration for generating new material.
Saturday // 10:00am – 1:00pm
RHYTHM, TEXTURE AND NUANCE
In this session the focus will be on personal exploration and finding new and unexpected ways of moving . Kami will provide a basic framework of movement sequences that students will take apart, remix and build upon. We will discuss and explore how to develop the creative mind, how to utilize your inspiration or a lack thereof and how to direct your attention and intention.
Please bring notebook, a writing device and one image that you finding inspiring.
Sunday // 10:00am – 1:00pm
DEVISING TECHNIQUES TO DEVELOP YOUR PERSONAL STYLE
Please note: Students must take the first class (Rhythm, Texture and Nuance) in order to take this workshop.
This class will give the dancers the time and space to explore different possibilities to discover and develop their own artistic voice. Getting in touch with and recognizing your movement idiosyncrasies is key to fine tuning your individual voice within the dance. We will explore how emotions can transform material or be used as stimuli. In these sessions, dancers will explore many ways to arrange movement onto themselves, other dancers and groups.
