Tuesday Technique! Kelly Anderson Dance Theatre
October 4th-December 20th
$10 suggested donation

This contemporary modern class is inspired by the aesthetic of release technique and integrates the basic principals of classical modern. Anderson introduces movement sequences that culminate into a larger phrase explored at class end. Though primarily based in phrase work, this class also explores improvisation and choreographic tools that will encourage a dance artist’s development of creation.

Sundays 12-2pm

BB-2014-webOngoing class
$10 Suggested Donation

A weekly movement lab to expand awareness both physically and energetically. Explore your imagination through movement in a supportive environment, create personal internal landscapes to move with mindfulness and presence.  You will be encouraged to take risks, listen,  move with your subtler senses, and to create a personal body language.

[Butoh is a practice which seeks to embrace the shadow self. It offers us a chance to discover our relationship to nature, the cosmos, other sentient beings, and our shamanistic selves. Welcome them to your future.]

Sara Zalek has practiced and studied Butoh for over 10 years, incorporating Tai Chi, yoga, Noguchi gymnastics,  ritual dance, and visual arts into her teaching. More about Sara: www.saratonin.com.

New Room

The series is intended to support works in progress, creative risks, and experimentation. We aim to create a supportive environment where performers are able to not only explore new work, but also work on their performative presence. New Room asks the audience to provide written feedback for the performers and encourages community building with conversations and wine at the end.

New Room falls on the first (or second) Saturday of the ‘ON’ months: January, March, May, July, September, November. On ‘OFF’ months there are opportunities for special events and site specific explorations. Work will flow, transformation will solidify, new territory will form.
