DanceNL is proud to present an NL Moves workshop, A Point of Departure: playing with movement and improvisation, with Andrea Tucker.
The workshop is open to the general public and will build upon the principles of Contact, Releasing, and Contemporary technique to give participants a strong, personal movement foundation. Open movement improvisations and explorations will focus on using senses other than sight, dancing in contact with another person, or the environment, using weight, momentum, counterbalance, and gravity. Participants should wear comfortable clothing and be prepared to dance in bare or stocking feet. Knee pads may be worn but are not necessary. No dance experience is necessary.
