Sidra Bell Dance NY Workshop and Showing

Aug 24, 2009 - Sep 4, 2009; Mon - Sat
Monday through Friday: 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Saturdays: 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Sidra Bell has crafted a unique approach to unlocking the creative potential in each dancer. In a workshop that explores an articulate body through effort, risk, impulse, breath, gesture, weight, touch, space, direction and line, artists of various backgrounds and experience can discover their individual voice and physical potential. Throughout the workshop phrase work from the repertory of Sidra Bell Dance New York will be introduced. The phrase work challenges the dancers to investigate an extreme sense of physicality and specificity. They are asked to use their imagination and intellect to find a greater sense of freedom within the movement.

There will be a special showing at the end of the class on Saturday, performed by the workshop participants.
