Moving Arts Presents Dance Workshop Plus Performance With New Mexico Dance Project
The Dance Workshop will take place June 28-June 30 at Moving Arts in Española.
This intensive style workshop, for ages 10 and up (adult dancers are encouraged as well), will include ballet and modern technique classes, dance conditioning, repertoire, improvisation, and additional enrichment classes.
This workshop is designed to provide further insight into the dance industry as well as awareness of local and national opportunities for students aspiring to the dance profession.
The workshop is open to any students in the northern New Mexico Region and will be followed by a special performance of New Mexico Dance Project’s original work, “Pieces of Yellow.”
Featuring original choreography, “Pieces of Yellow” is a touring production by New Mexico Dance Project that explores how our sense of curiosity, play, and wonder are put aside as we grow up and are faced with the mundane routines that ebb away at our creativity. It is a challenge for us to reimagine life had we left our yellow raincoats on.
The performance will feature students who opt-in to the performance component of the workshop and will be free to the public.
As is customary for New Mexico Dance Project productions, a talk back session will directly follow the performance.
New Mexico Dance Project is a contemporary dance company based in Santa Fe. Founded in 2019 by husband and wife team Scarlett Wynne and Erik Sampson, NMDP produces original concert works and short films that focus on capturing the imagination and inspiring curiosity.
The company exists to widen the spectrum of how dance is accessed and experienced by its audience; emphasizing the art of storytelling as a means of bridging the divides brought on by cultural, racial, and social differences.
