Dance Theater Workshop at Peridance
A dance theater workshop called Motion Creates Emotion and Emotion Creates Motion will take place on July 22-26 at Peridance, NYC FACULTY. The workshop is an opportunity to expand your craft, technique and creativity in an exclusive, personalized, tailored program. This is an opportunity for dancers, actors and performers to develop their potential on both movement and theater performance skills and connect both to become more authentic, expressive performers.
This Workshop explores the principle: Motion Creates Emotion /Emotion Creates Motion and emphasizes the use of imagination, interpretation and body coordination and control.
Students will develop alignment technique and an understanding of the dynamic in dance. Increase flexibility and strength as well as to develop muscular awareness in order to prevent injuries. Using phrases of ALDD repertory, students will solve technical problems. Proper technique is the foundation for learning to dance and control the body, showing how to use one’s muscles, achieve balance, and become aware of posture and placement.
Students will experience and study Anabella Lenzu/DanceDrama (ALDD) repertory. The emphasis is on the journey rather than the destination, on understanding the impulses generated by movements and gestures. The search is for authentic and honest movement. Derived from our most basic impulses, these dance works use this principle to examine relationships between the individual and society, exploring communication, identity, memory, and spirituality, the relationship between people and their environment, the struggle for women’s identity and their role in society, and the nobility of the body as a temple for our mind, soul, and heart.
