Freestyle Conversation - a Movement Lab workshop w/ Danielle Christine

Utilizing Freestyle Exploration techniques, this freedance workshop will encourage students to explore what it is to connect with another dancer through a series of guided partner exercises and prompts.

You will start small, with simple exercises to observe and connect with other dancers, and explore what it is to move like another student. Exercises build on one another, allowing you to forge empathetic connections and engage in a conversation through dance, joining with your partner to tell stories, culminating in a collaborative partner performance.

At the end, each duo will have the opportunity to work together to create their unique idea and bring it to life.

This workshop is designed to foster powerful bonding between partners, allowing a safe space in which to create, collaborate, listen, and respond, while breathing life into a conversation through dance. Suitable for intermediate to advanced level students, but beginners welcome if they have a solid understanding of movement around the pole.
