Our Winter Intensive returns to Hunter College from January 9-14th, 2023 and we are very excited to finally be back in the studios with everyone and share dance work that feels important and vital to us. The intensive will be six full days of technique, repertory and creative exploration in the wonderfully spacious studios of Hunter College. Beyond the classes, together we will build a beautiful sense of community that allows everyone to do their best work, exploring new facets of their dancing and artistry. Come join us again or for the first time. Can’t wait to see you all there. -Doug

January 9-14: Winter Intensive at Hunter College
This highly technical, movement-based class investigates the line of human movement and how it can affect the broader strokes of our dancing. Through the expansive use of the back and limbs, Varone’s style will be explored through an emphasis on breath, strength, dynamic lyricism and musicality.
This class will spend short intense spans of time exploring excerpts (i.e. duets, trios, etc.) from a variety of pieces, offering an overview of Varone's work. Through this investigation, the class will experience the wide range of movement dynamics, emotional nuance and spatial architecture inherent in Varone's choreography.
Choreographic Devices with Doug Varone
Varone will emphasize compositional structure and explore new devices for expanding and inventing material. A large body of material will be created, varied and manipulated both in and out of the studio, pushing towards the development of a new work utilizing the material built in class.
