Gibney Dance

Contemporary Class- 1st and 3rd Mondays

Being in community and moving are so vital to our well-being and sense of possibility – now more than ever. This class offers both: we’ll do a thorough warm up drawing on modern dance, Simonson technique, and kinesthetic anatomy principles. The class includes stretching and a range of fluid and rhythmical movement. There will be an invitation to generate and contribute movement of your own (as you feel comfortable!). All movement can be done seated or standing. Movers of all dance backgrounds welcome.

Choreographic and Creative Expression - Class on 2nd and 4th Mondays

This class invites us to cultivate our authentic creative voices. The class begins with a brief warm up and then shifts into learning foundational choreographic skills, including how to translate stories and language into movement. Both drop in and regular participants are welcome. There will be stand alone exercises as well as an opportunity to develop one's own creative project over time, in movement and whatever art forms call to each participant. Additionally, skill building in how to offer supportive feedback to artists, based on Liz Lerman's Critical Response Process will be offered. Movers of all dance backgrounds welcome.

Suggestion Contribution: $10, you are welcome to attend $0 or $5 or another amount.
