After the Sunday placement audition, students will be recommended to take either the Intermediate or the Advanced Technique levels. All full-time students participate in each course and receive instruction from all three master teachers. The course descriptions are as follows:
Limón Technique provides rigorous training and features the use of breath, weight, opposition, isolation, succession, musicality and expressive gesture.
Excerpts from major Limón works will be taught, with several groups scheduled at the same time. Repertory excerpts range from full group sections to solo material.
New Repertory created during the workshop utilizes the specific strengths of the students, and will be presented in a final informal showing.
Breath and Movement –
The purpose of the course is to help dancers to achieve a clear sense of creating movement from their own being as they use their dance technique. From energizing and sensing our breath, to building power and articulation from the inside out, class work develops to full and challenging dancing.
Principles of Performance-
This course centers on honing performance skills and discovering how experiences can be kinetically understood. Students should bring a notebook. Material from this course may be presented in a final informal showing.
To work with almost any choreographer, dancers need to demonstrate the ability to support, respond and communicate with fellow performers. This course gives dancers experience and guidance in duet work and partnering. Material from this course may be presented in a final informal showing.
The workshop concludes with an informal presentation of Repertory, Principles of Performance & Partnering on Saturday, June 24 at 1pm in the McGarvey CPAC 272. This showing will be approximately 2 hours and is free and open to the public.
