Ellie is invested in dance practice as a way to expand boundaries of thought and as a way to create deep and lasting knowledge within the body. Using a variety of spinal exercises that develop out out of initial somatic floor work, we'll warm from the proximal to the distal and make use of momentum in more complex and physically demanding movement phrases. As dancers we get to create art daily. This physical process of art making can integrate our bodies and awaken us as critically thinking and feeling organisms. Class will invite us to learn, remember and perform phrase material and analyze movement in depth … even while we are in motion! Find out more about Ellie here.

Molodi's creators Jason Nious, Khalid Freeman, and Antwan Davis will be at Shawl-Anderson Dance Center to conduct a special master class. During this 90-minute class these professionals will give a performance demo, a lecture on the art form of stepping, creating and collaborating. After all that they will teach some unique Molodi choreography. This experience will get you inspired and tuned in to the fun and challenging world of body music as presented by Molodi. No previous dance or movement experience is required. Just a willingness to learn about making music with the body and having a fun challenge in a supportive group setting.

Individually, Molodi is comprised of artists from great international productions like Stomp, Step Afrika, Cirque Du Soleil. They were featured in the 2013 International Body Music Festival, 2013 International Dance Encore Festival, 2013 Outside the Box Festival and by the Nevada Ballet. Molodi was honored to be apart of collaborative effects in the major motion pictures Stomp The Yard 1 and 2.

Introduction to Ballet
with Kate Jordan

6 weeks: Saturday, Jan 24 - Feb 28
1-2:30PM

$75 Advance Registration on or before January 15

This Introduction to Ballet class series is geared towards the adult who has no ballet background. The class is also suggested for adults who have not danced in a while or are returning from an injury. The 6-week series introduces students to the basic movement vocabulary, aesthetics and structure of a ballet class. Special emphasis is given to healthy, natural body alignment, and full use of one's range of motion through the ballet vocabulary. This approach builds our strength, coordination, musicality, flexibility and endurance. We investigate how the whole body and spirit contribute to each movement we do, whether a small hand gesture or large jump. We also consider how movement in ballet connects to movement in our everyday lives.
