Contemporary Dance Workshop with Lesandra Dodson

Saturday, April 22, 2017 at 12:00pm - 1:30pm

Workshop: Body Word Bank 

This workshop will provide physical exploration through a series of movement exercises, text, improvisation and creative movement development. It will start with a technical series of short simplistic exercises that are designed to focus on specific body articulation – with a goal of creating responsive, energizing movement reaction, and alignment awareness. These exercises will also focus the participant on detailed movement dynamics and rhythm changes. The second part of the workshop is designed to explore choreographic creation and movement invention. It will investigate different ways to use text to build and create movement sequences. There will be focus on breath, sound and the effect it has upon movement invention.

Originally from Vancouver, Lesandra Dodson’s training and professional work, as a dancer, choreographer, director, and producer have taken her across the country; living in Winnipeg, Ottawa, Toronto, and Fredericton. She is Co-Artistic Director of a new physical theatre company, the coop, a dance educator at Saint Thomas University and continues be an avid collaborator/creator on independent dance projects.

Ages 12 and up. Some dance / movement experience necessary. Cost is $10.
