Sunday June 30, 2019 - Student Workshop

Whether you're a brand new beginner, or a seasoned professional these are important subjects - and frankly, subjects there is no escaping from, so let's talk about them!

Understanding the expected etiquette of the local community, type of show or performance space can really help alleviate worry, remove possible pitfalls, and make everyone's experience better. We'll spend some time talking about what expectations might be, how to be a considerate participant and how to handle things that might come up.

When performing, even the most seasoned performers experience stage fright - really! Do not think that you are alone in experiencing this sensation for one more second. But more importantly, why does it happen and what can you DO about it! Let's share some stories, and some pointers - let's look at minimizing this so we can get on with DANCING!

Some times negativity comes from inside our own heads, and sometimes it comes from an outside source. But either source can really wreck a great performance experience, and so we need to shut them up! How do we handle those moments and turn them around?

Panel discussion appropriate for all levels of performers
Participation encouraged (but not required!)
Panel Members: Kim Nyx Astéria, Yame Abdo and Paula Phillips
Moderated by Miriam Berger

Workshop Cost:  $30.00 Prepay  /  $40.00 at the door

Dance Dynamics and Improvisation

Using Dance dynamics to create your own style, improvisational performances, and new technique patterns The Dance Dynamic methodology has been used at her studio and in Amity’s own practice for years.

Dancers always leave this workshop changed and with enough homework for a year. The invaluable techniques learned in this workshop can be used for improvisation, personal dance drills, and creating choreography. You’ll no longer need to memorize combinations you learned in workshops or from other dancers; you'll have your own unique movement vocabulary that you can pull from memory at the flick of a zill!
