This is an [In-person] MELT workshop happening at
MR's Ninth Street Studio.

>>REGISTER HERE<<

Pre-registration is required. No drop-ins.
Participants must register for the full workshop.


Workshop Description:

Learn a warm-up choreography designed to enhance visual focus, hand-eye coordination, articulation of hands and feet, freedom of the spine, and the dancer's own phrasing. This standing sequence can be used as a physical and mental preparation of performance. I find it to be a vehicle for embodying a dramatic, personal, emotional communication (I choreographed it in the aftermath of the collapse of the world trade center in 2011).

Horizons can be watched in Irene Dowd´s digital archive of choreographic training materials at: irenedowdchoreographies.com
