This workshop will dive into the learning of rigorous and detailed phrase material culminating into a choreographic composition. We will focus on movement ease and efficiency by finding ways to release into the elngth of our limbs and soften in our joints to encourage optimal mobility in our dancing. We will locate and experience how the energetic lines of the body can fulfill a wide range of movement from gesture to virtuosity. Melinda will share her choreographic process including improvisation, phrase building and catching, and compositional prompting. Come prepared for extensive floor work. The three classes will accumulate material, but dancers are welcome to attend even if they are unable to come to the entire workshop.
