Deepen your unique sense of movement exploration. Improvisation classes are led by rotating Teaching Artists on the last Friday of the month, crafted for dancers of all levels to enjoy and unwind from the week.
Co-creating, Collaborating & Composing - Improvisation for a Community
The Lovelies establish a collaborative environment to build a dance spontaneously. Class will focus on making poetic decisions, composing as an ensemble, and improvising with expanded awareness. All levels welcome.
The Lovelies are a 4th generation compositional improvisation company working to uncover, establish and conclude the present through curiosity and discovery. The making of dance, sound, spatial- and time-based decisions allow The Lovelies to question the possibilities and generally help, hinder, destroy and create pieces in the moment. The Lovelies have been presented by Judson Church, Triskelion Arts, The Gershwin Hotel, Manhattan Inn, among others. The Lovelies produce the series Slice & Dice to provide a space residency for artists to create long form dances.
