May 21, 2020 @ 2:00PM — 3:00PM
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 send you a private Zoom code and support a quality experience for all. Please sign up to save your spot!
Join Synapse Arts for FREE dance-centric events! In the past this day has been chock full of in-person activities. This year we are reimagining Free Dance Day for virtual space, with three main events intended for all ages, abilities, identities, and incomes.
Learn about the Synapse Arts - New Works program in a Q&A session with former New Works artists, take an intermediate/advanced workshop with Kristina Fluty, and have young artists try a ballet class.
All events are free and open to the public. Zoom codes available upon request (registrants for this workshop will receive an automatic email). See event info below for details. Full schedule and registration details available at www.synapsearts.com.
