Contemporary with Tamisha Guy


Aug 17 2020


Eastern Time
1:00 pm





My contemporary dance class begins with a guided improvisation, which helps the dancers in their connection to the ground, their bodies and the space around them. After the exploration, we begin to transition to the second portion of class which consists of a series of plies, tendus, and loose yet grounded movement to help with distribution of weight and to deepen their connection to the ground. Now that the dancers are more integrated, we begin to work on a lengthy phrase which focuses on establishing one’ center and moving away from it using clear, conscious and efficient transitions. Ultimately I invite the dancers to make their own choices within the movement and to approach each step with clarity and confidence. (75 mins)

TAMISHA GUY, a native of Trinidad and Tobago, began her formal dance training at Ballet Tech, under the direction of Eliot Feld. Later she attended Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School, and SUNY Purchase College as a double major in dance and arts management. She has completed summer programs with Complexions Contemporary Ballet and Springboard Danse Montreal, and has performed works by William Forsythe, Pam Tanowitz and Mark Morris. In 2013 Guy graduated with honors from SUNY Purchase College and joined the Martha Graham Dance Company shortly after. In 2016 Guy was selected as one of Dance Magazine’ Top 25 to Watch and she also received the 2016 Princess Grace Award. In 2017, she was named one of the Best Dancer’s of the Year by Dance Europe. Tamisha currently dances with A.I.M, under Artistic Direction of Kyle Abraham, which she joined in 2014.
