Monday, September 24, 2018 / 10am-11:30am / ARCOS Dance (Austin, TX)
The ARCOS aesthetic is both nuanced and expansive, inviting dancers to deeply explore their own artistic context and offering the freedom to integrate their personal voice within highly expressive, contemporary movement. Drawing on principles of GYROTONIC® and release technique to prepare the body for quick directional and level changes, clear and calm focus, and efficient use of breath with emotional expression, Erica provides a forum for personal investigation of both artistic and physical longevity.
Tuesday, September 25, 2018 / 10am-11:30am / Rebecca Lemme/Acts of Matter (Los Angeles, CA)
Significantly informed by both Release and Laban/Bartenieff techniques, this class encourages investigation, problem solving, and versatility. Release technique is a method of movement discovery in which the superficial musculature of the body gives way to essential skeletal mechanisms, ultimately revealing greater dimension throughout the body. Class work will be grounded in the principle that self-exploration is the dancer’s most effective tool of development and is essential to finding authenticity of movement. While designed for intermediate to advanced movers, beginning movers with a deep curiosity are also encouraged to attend.
Wednesday, September 26, 2018 / 10am-11:30am / Jessica Miller Tomlinson (Chicago, Il)
Jessica teaches a modern/ contemporary class which focuses on developing technical strength as well as encouraging freedom of thought and movement interpretation. Jessica has developed her own movement style and way of working which is influenced by a mix of classical modern techniques. Her class incorporates floor work, a strong emphasis on Cunningham technique and the ability to seamlessly sew movements together while working on core/ distal relationships. Participants will strive for technical virtuosity as well as finding their own personal artistic voice.
