Dancer / Musician Improvisation Jam

 

DANCER MUSICIAN IMPROVISATION JAM:
project agora & Studio 200

September 17, 2017 7-10 PM

Observers and participants of all genres of music and dance are welcome. The intention of the improvisation jam is to create a supportive environment in which members of the dance and music communities can utilize one another to inspire improvisational choices. Both communities have much to learn from each other as improvisers and the beauty that results from unexpected collisions of backgrounds, approaches, and differences. The improvisation jam provides an occasion for dancers to develop their sense of listening while improvising and for musicians to respond sonically to what they observe in movement, without the pressure of producing a finished piece. The aim is to learn from one another and gain a deeper understanding of the relationship between both forms of physical expression.

WHERE:  Studio 200, 301 8th Street (@ Folsom), 2nd Floor

WHEN:  September 17, 2017 7 PM - 10 pm

COST: $10 Suggested Donation to Studio 200, nobody turned away for lack of fees

Ongoing Open Technique Class

Every Tuesday 6:00-7:30:
This class is designed to increase and enhance the technical and performance abilities of experienced students in the discipline of contemporary dance.   Information and exercises for the movement phrases are drawn from a variety of technical and improvisational mechanisms and vocabulary.  Through the practice and execution of center floor exercises, traveling patterns and choreographed phrases, the class places emphasis on spatial awareness, proper alignment, increased strength and flexibility, musicality and rhythm. The class focuses on an economical approach to movement by emphasizing the use of the pelvis and spine and addresses the ways one’s inner landscape, mind, and ego affect a movement vocabulary’s overall aesthetic.
