Three-Day Dance Intensive with Leah Wilks
Friday, August 3 ~ Sunday, August 5
10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Carolina Friends School
4809 Friends School Road
Durham, NC 27705
This three-day intensive will function as a space to get back into our dancing and creating bodies as summertime starts to draw to a close. Been wishing for some time to dive into your physical practice and learn some new moves? Hoping for some space to explore a new choreographic idea in a safe environment, or to get some new choreographic tools for an upcoming project? Just wanting to move with other bodies in a guided improvisational setting? We’ll be doing it all!
The grade/age minimum is 9th grade/14 years-old (or with special permission from the instructor).
All classes will take place at the Carolina Friends School Center Building (Directions).
Each day consists of three different classes:
- 10 am-noon: Intermediate/Advanced Physical Practice (Release Technique a.k.a. MOVES MOVES MOVES)
- 1-2:45 pm: Improvisation and Somatic Integration (in contact and solo)
- 3-5 pm: Composition Laboratory
You can sign up for all three classes all three days, one class for all three days, or just one day of all three classes. Drop-ins are also welcome, but material may continue to build on work from the previous classes.
