Since I’ve been working on trying to clean up previous movmements with my dancers, I’ve gone ahead to create more stuff. I want some part of my dance to be very strong and athletic and I want my dancers to be able to feel somewhat free from the audience’s gaze/judgement in order to achieve full embodiment. Do you all think that the movements might be to strong for this…I’m trying to make movements in which dancers can get into it and not worry about technicalities? What sort of movements would you all suggest for this?
I've always loved rhythms and performing in public spaces. My mom helped to grow that love within me by placing me in jazz, tap, and ballet classes starting at the age of 7. I continued until I was about 11. From 11 to about 14, I didn't have any formal dance training. I had some opportunities to dance in school plains, still pulling from the little, but solid technique I learned from a few years back. Upon entering high school, I started taking modern dance classes and continued until I graduated. When I started Dickinson, I continued with modern dance, but I have also begun to pay more attention to hip-hop, belly dance, and west african dance. View all posts by harrisco
