Mondays, Tuesdays & Thursdays, August 3, 2020
  • This MELT workshop is being offered virtually through Zoom.

Movement Research offers this MELT workshop virtually over Zoom.

Workshop description:

What is your first impulse? Can you trust it? What happens when the judge falls asleep? Can you know too much? This is a workshop about intersection Dancing and Writing and Improvisation and Composition.

In this workshop we will use several improvisation strategies to open a free flow of immediate, spontaneous writing and dancing.

MELT Zoom Etiquette Guidelines:

  • We ask that you please "Mute" yourself when you are not verbally participating.
  • Please do your best to arrive on time and stay for the duration of the session. If you plan to leave early, inform the faculty member at the top of class using the "Chat" function in your Zoom window.
  • Experiencing connectivity or technological issues? Either use the "Chat" function to communicate with the MR administrator, or email “[email protected]" and someone will assist you as soon as possible.
