September 6 & 7, 8 PM: Performances at Lobero Theatre
Masterclass with Doug Varone and Dancers co-taught by company members Whitney Dufrene and Ryan Yamauchi
Sat, Aug. 24, Lobero stage Registration: 10:30 AM, Class: 11 AM – 1 PM
Experience level: Intermediate and above.
This technical, movement-based class investigates the line of human movement and how it can affect the broader strokes of our dancing. Through the expansive use of the back and limbs, Doug Varone’s style will be explored through an emphasis on breath, strength, dynamic lyricism and musicality. Beginning with a simple warm-up that fuels and awakens the entire body, the class continues with center work that explores the blur between the highly technical dancers we seek to be and the pedestrian/humans that we are. The class culminates in phrases that seek to extend the range of the body’s peripheral motion and may include company repertory.
Fee: $20 for dancers / $10 for observers.
All attendees are eligible to purchase $10 tickets to the performance as a one-time-only deal!
