Master classes provide an introduction to our repertoire. The classes begin with a warm-up, and then move into learning the dance phrases from selected repertoire. The learning focus is on the detail within the larger movement, mechanics of working in the space and performance quality.

Classes we have offered

  • Open Source Forms workshops (OSF): Focuses on cross-fertilizations and deep commonalities of releasing technique and creative process. It is guided by the philosophy that the source of creativity and wisdom is available in each of us.
  • Making Dance Maps – Mining the source™: Develop unique movement vocabulary and find the ‘dance’ in the memories and stories inside ourselves.
