International Guild of Disabled Artists and Performers
Join us for AXIS' 2017 Summer Intensive & Teacher Training
August 7-16, 2017 | Malonga Casquelourd Center for the Arts, 1428 Alice St. Suite 200, Oakland, CA 94612
Learn new skills in three different modules derived from the company’s working ethos and repertoire that will enhance and develop your own practice in improvisation, choreography and performance, and dance education. Back by popular demand, our specialized 3-day teacher training provides professional dance teachers and experienced artists the chance to enhance their skills and working methods in inclusive dance and translation for dancers with physical disabilities. Modules taught by AXIS Company Dancers and led by Marc Brew, who returns to the Summer Intensive as AXIS Dance Company's newly-appointed Artistic Director.
The following 3 modules will be explored throughout the week and dance artists can register for 1, 2 or all 3 modules (discounts available for enrolling in multiple modules):
Artistic Director Marc Brew and AXIS Dancers will lead students daily through improvisation scores and structured improvisation to develop partnering and listening skills in a trusting and safe environment. Students will respond to different sites and locations as well as each other, learning how we can effect time and space through the choices we make as performers and the influences around us.
Each day, Choreography and Performance students will begin with a technique class learning material and dance sequences to develop technique, memory, coordination and movement qualities and dynamics. Students will use these skills to develop their own choreographic interests, investigate their own practice, and gain insight into the tasks and skills used to devise the work in the company’s current repertoire. The works created will be rehearsed and developed with a performance opportunity to present the work as part of a sharing for peers and friends of the AXIS Dance Company community.
Our teacher-training course is designed for teachers of dance and experienced artists interested in developing their teaching skills in leading integrated dance in an inclusive and supportive environment.
One Module - $300
Two Modules - $525
Three Modules - $750
Deadline for applications Friday, May 5th.
