What's Included

Non-tech class open to all students CLASSES HELD AT TEMESCAL ARTS CENTER (511 48th St. Oakland) Dance theater is modern dance that embraces and explores theatrical narratives. In this class, students will generate movement and text that they will use to collaboratively create a dance theater performance piece. Students will learn simple warm-ups for body and voice; layer dance with spoken pre-existing text (poetry, songs, monologues); use thematic ideas to generate simple movement phrases and written texts; experiment with repetition of movement and sound; offer and receive positive feedback; and work together to create a devised dance theater performance piece. Possible themes we will explore: identity; transformative moments; surprising loss; being alone in a crowd; the power of connection; and more..
