Smashworks Dance - STL Workshop

Join Smashworks Dance for a 2 hour workshop that fuses classical modern techniques, improvisational structures, and the athletic and musically-driven style of the New York-based company. Dancers begin with a technical warm-up in the center, intermixed with improvisational moments that allow students to test physical boundaries while focusing on intention and dynamics. Class progresses with phrase work from FOR WHICH IT STANDS, and gives dancers space for variation, improvisation, and physical contact. Finishing off with an open dialogue, this workshop invites the group to reflect on their experiences within their movement research, and question how we can integrate political action with performance.
