Contemporary: A Spirital/Anatomical Approach
A dance practice conceived and developed by Mary Kate Sheehan.
Modern Dance techniques, like the contraction, the spiral, and release technique, are the foundations of all that we love as today's Contemporary Dance--yet we so often forget this! This class/workshop explores how we can use "old" ideas intelligently to make us stronger, smarter, more efficient contemporary dancers with limitless physical possibilities... all with a sprinkling of yogic philosophy to further the essential well-roundedness of the contemporary dancer. Sweat, smile, and move with power.
Mary Kate has more than 10 years of teaching experience in many genres, including ballet, jazz, contemporary, modern, pointe, and Irish dancing. She works with all levels of dance experience from age 4 up through adults. She teaches both technique and repertory as well as partnering and composition in pre-professional and professional settings in internationally. She is currently Contemporary and Modern faculty at Peridance Capezio Center and STEPS on Broadway in New York City.
