Winter Dance Workshop with Paul Matteson

The College of Arts and Sciences is pleased to announce a Winter Dance Workshop with guest artist, Paul Matteson, happening January 16th-20th, 2017.

This five-day workshop intensive will include pilates and technique classes in the morning and partnering classes in the afternoon.  The workshop will have an end-of-workshop informal showing where participants perform the work learned throughout the week.

Topics covered include an investigation of off-balanced, yet precise multi-focused movement. Classes begin by grounding and strengthening the core of the body while encouraging an alert presence. Dancers will also explore negative space, responses to touch, and various ways of harnessing momentum.

Workshop Age Range:  Trained dancers from ages 18 and up who plan to pursue or are currently pursuing a dance profession in performance, choreography, and/or teaching. Dancers should have at least 4 years of consecutive dance training.

Cost: $275 per registrant.  $250 early bird registration before Wednesday, January 4.

Dates:  January 16-20, 2017

Times:  8:30am-2:30pm daily
