Workshop: Choreography = Possibility / Dance = Potentiality
This workshop - practices and examples, thinking and more examples - zoom in on the 2014 rise of dance “detached” from choreography and signification. A dance produced in a post-critical environment gaining momentum through contemporary phenomena, spiritual practices, digital interfaces and current modes of remixing, editing and combining. Today experience the coming of Dance 2.0, a dancing that can allow itself a proactive incompatibility with tradition and representation and we dance together. October 4, 11, 18 SAT 5-8pm

Discussion: Wait A Second, The Mood Is Dancy, Theory Without Boox, We Will Hear
If we do it on the floor maybe it’ll work better? Or we could, I dunno… it’s not so important but I really like if you come. For serious. Like exorcism light and there’ll be like blankets if you wanna have a nap. Maybe also like the mouthier version of La Substance… like the making-of but through talking. Theory in the studio, or studio theory but without study – kind of the same as dance – because it’s great and we like. Really far from NYU closer to Whole Foods really almost next to alchemy and nail polish. October 5, 12, 19 SUN 2-4pm

Learning by Dancing
Studying how to develop and feed one's own interests and skills within a shifting framework is a large part of my work as a freelance professional dancer and artist. When I teach, I share this perspective through scores and structures that are designed to create a practice-oriented way to be one’s own teacher: identifying interests, fueling curiosity, heightening awareness and strengthening skills of observation, evaluation, and modification. We will work in a variety of approaches towards holistic and uninhibited dancing, while creating a platform for supporting one's orientation, direction, perspective, technique, discipline, and desire within the volatile professional field. $18/class $75/full workshop

Flying Low
This dance technique, created and developed by David Zambrano, focuses mainly on the dancer's relationship with the floor. The class utilizes simple movement patterns that involve breathing, speed and the release of energy throughout the body in order to activate the relationship between the center and the joints, moving in and out of the ground more efficiently by maintaining a centered state. There is a focus on the skeletal structure and the senses that will help to improve the dancers physical perception and alertness.

Improvisation for Performers
Improvisation on stage involves the use of conscious choices in order to create an environment in which to dance. Students will be encouraged to find their own creative thoughts, integrating body and mind, space and time, learning to dance with a flexible mind and body. Thus we will create material for structuring solos, duets or group situations. "Dancing is perfect when a relationship of totality exists. The coming together of heaven/dancer/earth, past/present/future, and feminine/masculine results in a dance experience that is orgasmic for both dancers and audience." Open to dancers experienced in performing improvisation on stage.

Questionable Journeys: A workshop on the relationship between inquiry and practice in the making of
November 1, 8, 15 Saturdays 5-8pm. "What can be analyzed in my work, or criticized, are the questions." (John Cage) In this workshop participants will address questions related to their own choreographic practice while simultaneously being challenged to step outside of their current path of inquiry in order to return to it with fresh artistic perspectives. During the workshop, each participant will develop a short work in progress. Through a process of sharing work, constructive feedback, and group discussion, participants will formulate and revise questions of artistic inquiry to further and deepen their practical investigation.
