SCHEDULE WITH CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Day 1 : Saturday May 27th

1-2:30pm - Connecting to your Core – Sexuality as Creativity
Part lecture, part movement, students will explore how tapping into the root of their strength, breaking down boundaries and building a solid foundation of self can unleash creativity.

3-4:30pm - The Slow Burn – Moving with Sensuality and Intention
Moving slowly on stage is challenging. It takes thought, confidence, and a belief in the expression you are portraying to your audience. It starts with a thought, is moved through action, and then becomes bestowed to your audience. Whenever you are moving on stage, you want your actions to radiate strength and grace, power and intention. This movement- and theory-based class will take you through a warm-up, a diverse range of movements and the theory behind them, and exploration of receptive and penetrative energies to bring the most diverse translations of your desires to the stage.
What to bring / needs : Please wear dance or yoga clothes and bring a note book and water. Dance shoes optional.

4:30-5pm - Break

5-6:30pm - Expression for Stripteasers
Beyond the peels and reveals of well done striptease lies the expression and communication of the body and spirit. Do you feel connected to some performers more then others? Do you admire the way they speak to you without words?
In this movement and philosophy based workshop we break apart and rework simple movements with the hands, face, and body. We incorporate inner dialog, energy exchange and mood manipulations suited for powerful stage presence.
Lean the technique of the face that launched a 1000 ships and the flick of the wrist that left them swooning!
