Heretica: Exploring the boundaries of movement

When: Thursdays, 5:30 - 6:30PM, July 20th to August 24th (Six Weeks)

Where:  Bright Star World Dance
               108 High Street3rd Floor
               Portland, ME 

Cost: $60 Advanced Registration/$75 Day Of (full session only – no drop-ins)

Drawing from a variety of contemporary dance styles as well as authentic movement and deep improvisation this class is a six week movement exploration.  Students who attend the six week program have the option to join the fall session of Heretica, an exploratory dance performance student troupe.

Utilizing techniques such as guided physical meditation, silent improvisation, group rhythmic exploration and theatrical movement, students will learn to create physical expressions of emotion 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 of all movement backgrounds are welcome to join the class.  Students should have a solid foundation in their particular movement style.  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. 

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.
