INTERSECT: EVIDENCE, A DANCE COMPANY AND TU DANCE: AUGUST 3-8

Participants will begin each day with classes from TU Dance Center teaching artists that are grounded in TU Dance's three pillars of Horton Based modern, West African and ballet. While these are commonly referred to as technique classes or training, TU Dance takes a look into how these dance forms intersect with one another and the many possibilities they offer. The goal of these classes is to prepare the dancer's mind, body and spirit to be fully present, ready to receive and engage, tap into different energies, and feel prepared to move openly into what follows. The workshop section of this intensive will be led by Ronald K. Brown and Arcell Cabuag. Participants will be immersed in the aesthetic and movement vocabulary of Evidence repertory through guided choreographic exploration. The participants will learn repertory as well as Afro-Cuban and Traditional and Contemporary African Dance techniques that are incorporated in the choreographic style.
*For inter-generational participants with a wide range to no dance experience
*Classes will be provided online via Zoom. All times listed in CST
20.5 hours/week: Monday-Friday, 11:00am-3:00pm; Saturday, 11:00am-12:30pm & 3:00-4:30pm
