The Center Dance Studio is pleased to announce “Picture This: a Journey into the Wordless,” our Fall ’21 Choreography Lab Series inspired by The Eric Carle Museum’s newest exhibition, Speechless: The Art of Wordless Picture Books. In this very special session of Theme & Variation, students will venture through the twists and turns of Aaron Becker’s award-winning Journey, to create a masterpiece of their own. A performance will take place at the end of the 10-week session.
Theme and Variation (1 hour and 45 minutes, grades 7+) encourages students to stretch themselves — both creatively and physically — in a supportive, community-oriented atmosphere. Students will apply their technical dance skills to a wide range of choreographic tasks, exploring movement dynamics, spatial design, time factors and relationship. Democratically selected themes and literary texts will inform collaborative dance building; students will also write across a variety of genres and use their work as choreographic material. By rooting students in the basics of Laban Movement Analysis, students will learn to constructively critique and refine their original ensemble works.
When: Wednesdays from 5:30-7PM; September 15th-November 17th
Where: The Center Dance Studio, 321 Main Street
