This class has two six week sessions. Each session will explore a particular theme.
Session 1 (9/12 - 10/17) - Deep Improvisation
Session 2 (10/24 - 11/28) - Inspiration: Creating with the Muse
Drawing from a variety of contemporary dance styles as well as authentic movement and deep improvisation, Heretica is deep exploration of movement.
Heretica utilizes techniques such as guided physical meditation, silent improvisation, group rhythmic exploration and theatrical movement, to aid students in creating physical expressions of emotion through movement and foster a seamless connection between mind and body; thought and action. The class is conducted to live music.
Each class includes a warm-up with drills, theatrical dance exercises and cool down. Optional out of class exercises that will help students build their movement practice at home will also be offered. Students who participate in either full session may be eligible to join the Heretica Student Troupe in 2018.
You will want to wear comfortable clothing that allows for freedom of movement. You may also want to bring a notebook and a water bottle.
Students of all movement backgrounds are welcome to join the class. Students should have a solid foundation in their particular movement/dance style.
In order to facilitate free exploration we seek to create a safe space for all types of dancers and movement artists to explore creative expression. The class is open to all genders and movement forms. Students should have a solid foundation in their particular movement/dance form.
