6:00-7:00p – It’s Your Stage: OWN IT! with Krista
Have you ever seen a performer who seemingly captivates the audience with her mere presence? You find yourself drawn into her world as though you are under a spell. Technique is, of course, very important, but it cannot stand on its own. Having a powerful and engaging stage presence is arguably the most important skill to have in your performer tool kit. It can save a performance with less-than-ideal technique, and it can elevate a performance with great technique to an epic level of AMAZING. In this workshop, we’ll discuss techniques you can use to magnify your stage presence, body language techniques that exude confidence, and how you can use these skills in your everyday life AND as an audience member for fellow dancers. And, I promise that it will be FUN!!!
7:00-7:30p – Potluck Dinner!
7:30-8:30p – *Anahata* Love Yourself Unconditionally with Krista
In our society, there has been established an ideal body type. The problem is that everyone’s body is different, so comparing oneself to a created ideal is an exercise in futility. Plus, it just really freaking sucks! In this workshop, we’ll discuss some of the current perceptions of the “ideal” body type, and then we’ll REBEL against this ideal! Viva la revolution! We’ll go through some physical and mental exercises to connect with the innate beauty within each of us. We’ll also discuss how self-love inevitably manifests into a love and appreciation of all body types, life stories, and a rejection of the societal pressure for women to compete rather than collaborate. We’ll go into some deep emotional territory here, but I promise that it will be fun and that we will maintain a SAFE environment for all to open up and be fully present.
8:30-9:30p – Be Water with Megg
In this workshop we will dive into fluid arm and hand movements to help the flow of your dance. We will work with shapes and learn how to carve and swim through space with strong elegant movements.
