• HOT SPOT: Alternativa with Kathleen Hermesdorf

    GUT Motives is an alternative contemporary dance class, an ongoing research towards a general unified theory of the act of motion from internal impulse to external expression. The work utilizes a hybrid of forms to encourage deep awareness and understanding of the body in itself and the body in motion, motivated by multiple meanings of guts, including viscera, center of gravity, courage, instinct, intuition, revelation and vulnerability. The practice is a progression of energy cultivation, hands-on investigation, somatic improvisation, technical experiments and methods of falling, flying and inversion, culminating in dynamic, 3-dimensional phrase work. The class is an intimate and animated arena for physical and artistic exploration, deeply informed by live, original music, and cultivating sensate virtuosity, kinetic efficiency and inter-active intelligence.

  • Contact Improvisation with Kim Epifano

    Kim Epifano's class builds contact improvisation skills to open the imagination and the body to every dancer’s potential. Students explore their individual creativity, balance, and body awareness while learning to move in relation to their self, the floor, and a partner. By sharing weight, strength, space and gravity, participants learn how to trust and be trusted while falling on and off the edges of their bodies.

  • Hot Spot with Holly Johnston

    Together, we create an experience of dancing as a self-regulating system, mode and means of responding, communicating and expressing ourselves through movement. Your body is fully acknowledged as source and resource of limitless possibilities. It is in the flux between knowing and unknowing that our bodies respond as instinct in order to find ground(ing); it is in this borderland that body can be a great generator of creative energies. Integrating somatics, movement phrases and improvisation we will generate new patterns of moving-thinking that offer our bodies time-space to actualize, reorganize and transform through our inherent movement intelligence and personal physical volition.

  • Contact Improvisation with Krista Denio

    This class proposes the inherent relationship between Composition and Contact Improvisation. We’ll begin with post-modern movement fundamentals, and a Body-Mind Centering® influenced approach to internal and external worlds. Then drawing on the vocabulary of time and space, through use of the Viewpoints and other compositional frameworks, we will explore choice-making within the micro and macro. From individual movement choices, to partnering work, and ensemble awareness of the whole room and relationships, we can broaden range and locate more diverse choice-making in the dance.
