This workshop is designed to expand each dancer’s understanding and efficient use of the body through classical and neo classical forms. This is a practical, technical class that employs classical ballet technique with the tools of improvisation, weight, shape, space, rhythm and time. We work from the foundations of William Forsythe’s Improvisation Technologies to remove artificial affectations leaving the core technique and pure physical architecture of the body. The ultimate goal of this study is to allow greater range of movement in the upper body while utilizing the lines and forms of classical ballet. The first hour of class will focus on learning the functionality of form and how to carry this knowledge into application through the second hour of class which is dedicated to phrase work and contemporary repertory. Repertory may be done on pointe.
