Check out the schedule below!

CRITICISM AND AESTHETICS WITH GREGORY KING

Starts Aug 6-Aug 27, 6 pm, $100* for 4 sessions

Investigate the nature, styles, formats and range of art, dance, and culture writings from writers of color, with an emphasis on practical application, in this four-week intensive with performance artist and activist Gregory King. Writers will be asked to submit reviews and essays for discussion as we examine the future of dance criticism and ways to diversity perspectives. Reading will be assigned weekly and will be drawn from the works of practicing arts and culture critics, as well as from short essays and reviews in the disciplines of culinary arts, music, dance, and other essay formats and styles. The works of Theresa Ruth Howard, Juan Michael Porter II, Eva Yaa Asantewaa, Nya McCarthy Brown, Gregory King, Rhonda Moore, Zita Allen, and Nigella Lawson will be examined.

PILATES FOR DANCERS

Starts Fri, Aug 7-Aug 28, 6 pm, $60* for 4 sessions

Pilates class helps dancers maintain their own instrument (the body) and provides tools for achieving health and well-being. Pilates exercises build strength, flexibility, and coordination; challenge students to think critically about movement; and encourage dancers to make physical and mental connections between daily life, dance class, and conditioning. This 90-minute class will begin with somatic-based awareness tasks, then move into more full and robust exercises, and finish with standing explorations that apply the mat material directly to dance. Participants can expect to leave class prepared to dance with greater connection, sensitivity, and success.
