Class Descriptions

Dynamic Sequencing with Adam Barruch

The class begins with dynamic flooring sequences, using the floor as a tool to explore efficiency and clarity of movement—warming the body while encouraging a sequential, articulated physicality. The initial phrases then build to seamlessly bring the dancers into standing movements that aim to stabilize and continue the body's connection with the ground. Following is a final phrase that explores the complex coordination between forceful initiations, speed and the retention of a supple and resonant expressivity.

Sidra Bell Dance New York’s CONTEMPORARY SYSTEMS

An interior & material approach to movement encourages provocative thought and an immersive approach to the subject matter of the body. Her work demands a high degree of physicality and input from the dancers, encouraging them to execute movement with intention, curiosity, care, rigor, and empathy.

Flow Space with Gregory Dolbashian:

An atmosphere that allows for the act of “pure play” to help dance artists use more capacity, intellect, sense, courage, and imagination in their movement styles. Conducted by director of The DASH Ensemble, Gregory Dolbashian, the class is a highly developed series of improvisational tools and games that warms and pushes both the mind and the body to break habits and fulfill more presence. These exercises are all methods that Gregory has developed and utilized to create movement with The DASH. The artists learn confidence not just in themselves but also in the environment that they are a part of. Games and tasks work both on the individual and in tandem, so that Flow Space creates a community for progress, inspiration, and most of all, discovery.

Dance Forward is a collaboration between 92Y’s Harkness Dance Center and Center for Arts Learning & Leadership.
