This class will leave you feeling creative, healthy, and inspired! And best of all, it fits in your living room (or another 6×6 foot space). Class begins with a technique based warm-up with an emphasis on strength, flexibility, and balance. Next, we’ll do a series of exercises to build specific contemporary dance skills and an ability to move freely with grace. We’ll end by learning a contemporary phrase, practicing full-body movement within a small space (a good skill to have!). We will be moving up and down from the floor, taking some weight on the hands, and learning a phrase. Some experience in Contemporary Dance may be helpful, though is not required.
Neva Cockrell is a professional dancer and interdisciplinary artist. She joined Pilobolus in 2016 and began serving as Dance Captain in 2017. With Pilobolus she has toured to Germany, Switzerland, Austria, China, Mexico, Israel, Dubai, and within the US. She is also a writer and director who uses dance-theater as a tool for social change. In 2010 she co-founded her own interdisciplinary company, Loom Ensemble, based in NYC which has toured across the US, Europe, and UAE. She is passionate about using Loom Ensemble performances to open difficult conversations, and then facilitate community discussion to unpack the emotional vulnerability and cultural taboos of each show.
She has been teaching dance, theater, and embodiment practices for over a decade, including opening Physique 57’s first international studio in Dubai and developing her own movement technique, Catalyst. Her diverse background in gymnastics, partner acrobatics, contact improvisation, Capoeira Angola, and Yoga inspire her unique style of Contemporary Dance in both her choreography and her classes. She is yoga teacher certified through Simple Yoga with Eric Stewart, and is deeply passionate about the overlap of somatic work and breaking down systems of oppression.
