Open yourself to experience how Pilobolus creates and performs. Join us for a two-day intensive designed to reawaken the senses. Participants expand their improvisational skills by connecting to the group with their senses. The workshop examines how dancers can use their senses of touch, sight, and sound to improve creativity and performance. The intensive includes rigorous physical training, improvisation, partnering and collaborative choreography.
Weekly Class: Partnering with All Five Senses
Pilobolus will also offer weekly partnering classes, Wednesday mornings at 10:00 am, March 21 – April 11!
In this two-hour class, students explore Pilobolus’ uniquely creative partnering techniques. Participants connect with individuals and space, expanding awareness and opening their senses. By turning attention outward, dancers forge a deeper connection with their environment and the people who inhabit it. Students will examine partnering fundamentals, including weightsharing and counterbalance. They will learn classic Pilobolus movements, and adopt Pilobolus’s core creative tools – improvisation and collaborative choreography – to create their own movement.
