Antwan's Stepping Workshop combines the basics of collegiate stepping and STOMP-style body percussion. This percussive dance workshop will physically, mentally and emotionally challenge students by bringing together coordination, rhythm, musicality and fun. This experience will ignite your imagination, instill discipline and promote teamwork as well as giving you the tools and inspiration you need to create your own music.
Partnering and Contact
with Rogelio Lopez and Andrew Merrell
August 9 & 16
This workshop will ease intermediate and advanced modern/contemporary dancers into the art of partnering, contact and weight sharing with longtime dance duo Andrew Merrell and Rogelio Lopez. The workshop is structured to introduce experienced dancers to the technique, play and freedom that we can find in partnering and contact work. There will be time for discussion, questions, experimentation and discovery. The instructors will encourage you to be open to the possibilities inherent in weight sharing, both athletic and expressive, and the use of improvisation in finding partnering. The goal is for each individual dancer to complete the workshop having gained a deeper understanding of their own strengths and challenges with partnering and having gained some new tools, approaches and perspectives to make the form more accessible in rehearsal and choreography.
