Meet the artists and get a glimpse into their unique journeys as they navigate and transform the ethos of current art. Open your perspective as you delve into their process and reimagine the future of the dance field. Artists curated by Alexandra Wells.

Workshops will take place via Zoom from July 13-August 6. A single workshop costs $40 and each additional workshop has a discounted cost of $20 each.

Workshop Description

Each 3-hour session includes technique, repertory/exploration/improvisation, and a ‘meet the artist’ discussion.

This workshop will begin with a FLOCK warmup focused on strength and stabilizing exercises coupled with somatic and improv based techniques. This will lead into learning excerpts from repertory and an exploration of FLOCK’s unique style and philosophy. The emphasis of the class is on researching physicality and finding and inhabiting personal artistry and will be followed by a Q&A session with Alice and Florian.

ABOUT FLOCK
