Shen Wei Dance Arts Workshop

Learn from the company behind the captivating choreography of the 2008 Olympic Opening Ceremony!

Aug 2, 2010 - Aug 6, 2010; Mon - Fri
Technique: 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Repertory: 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM

A unique opportunity to work with founding member Sara Procopio and the Director of Outreach Kate Jewett. Shen Wei Dance Arts, known for its distinct interdisciplinary cross-cultural style, fuses together theater, Chinese opera, and visual art. Meant for the forward-looking audience, the company continually receives invitations to perform at famous venues worldwide.

The workshop is separated into two classes. The first, a technique class, forges a pathway for the mind and body to approach dance in a new way. Dancers investigate movement ideas which include breath, internal energy, and momentum. In the repertory class students do not only learn selections from company repertory, but they continue exploration. True to Shen Wei's own process, students will draw compositional and movement inspiration from various art forms. Individual and collective research give dancers the opportunity to work on group and solo material within the class.
