The Site Speaks: Site Dance at Home with Nicole Dagesse
The Vermont Dance Alliance, in partnership with Inclusive Arts Vermont, Presents: The Site Speaks: Site Dance at Home with Nicole Dagesse!
Over the course of three weeks, students will learn 3-dimensional site dance techniques that begin with general similarities (find a site with a wall and a floor), and deepen into the unique history of each student’s home. Students will practice full body warm-ups leveraging their body within the site, investigate place through improvisation, and then begin to create unique choreography based on their specific site. Sign up here!
For: All ages, levels, and experiences who enjoy focused/individual improvisation are well equipped for this class! No specific experience necessary, but a willingness to explore, play, listen, and create is vital! Open level, and drop in friendly.
