Join Kristina Fluty of Molly Shanahan/Mad Shak and The Theatre School at DePaul University for a quick creative process class as part of Synapse Arts' Free Dance Day. We will build and investigate a long-form phrase of movement inspired by the fundamentals of Laban/Bartenieff, the Molly Shanahan commitment to spiral, and a Feldenkrais-like idiosyncratic engagement with self and the space. We will start gently with guided and improvisational movement to warm ourselves into larger dancing. This workshop is free of charge and pre-registration is required. This allows us to limit the class size and support a quality experience for all. Please sign up to save your spot!
Part of Synapse Arts' Free Dance Day: Join Synapse Arts for a full day of FREE dance classes, performances, and art activities! Visit Synapse's home studio at Loyola Park to take an adult modern dance class, learn about the Synapse Arts - New Works program info session with former New Works artists, watch informal performances by professional and student dancers, and bring kids to try a ballet class. All events are free and open to the public. Schedule and registration details available at www.synapsearts.com.
