Mile Zero Dance (MZD) presents Master Classes with Justine Chambers on November 13 to 17.
This workshop will focus on developing strategies to use western contemporary dance technique as a practice to re-familiarize ourselves with our bodies. With an openness to the possibility of functional change, we will explore the precise moments where our bodies are activated into movement. By acknowledging that all movement occurs as a sequence of perpetual dynamic negotiations, we will invite new configurations of support. In this workshop we will ask, what if we let go of the notion of stabilizing our bodies and invite any movement that arises to be part of what we are doing? How do we then organize our minds around expectations and intended outcomes? Through both improvisational scores and set exercises we will dance our way through continuous adaptation.
10 am – 11:30 AM
$65 for the full week.
Limited drop-in rates available at the door for non-members ($20) and members ($15).
Tickets can be purchased on EventBrite (https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/mile-zero-dance-presents-justine-chambers-master-classes-tickets-38787711088?aff=efbeventtix).
