MELT - Choreography for Warming-up to Dance

Irene Dowd

9:45am – 11:45am
July 31 – August 4, 2017

Participants will learn a selection of choreographic materials created by Irene during her ongoing interactions with professional dancers and dance teachers. These choreographies can be used as a very efficient warm-up for dance, as well as a musculo-skeletal conditioning program, neuro-muscular fine-tuning, and mental preparation for the greater awareness and expansiveness required of us all as creative performing artists. Areas of focus might include: dynamic trunk/pelvis stabilization, foot sensitization and articulation, hip joint mobilization, freeing the chest and shoulders.

Please note: this workshop takes place at Avenue C Studio.
