Virtual SIN | July 2021
A NOTE FROM DOUG
Even with many of us being fully vaxxed, we wanted to make sure that everyone still remained safe this summer. With that we are embarking on what will be our LAST virtual workshop. In the past year, we feel as if we’ve innovatively managed to build a unique virtual program that embraces the importance of community. This has always been a guiding principle for us as a dance company, whether in the studio, on stage or teaching, we’ve always believed in the power of connection. With our online classes, we’ve retained that sense with all of our students, exploring new ways to reach out past the screen in front of you to give you the same in-depth experience you’ve always valued.
Morning Warm Up
Dancers will be guided through a series of exercises that emphasize core strength and stability, and the use of dynamic breath. This time will be used to prepare your bodies for the day. Please have a mat or towel ready for class.
Modern Technique with Current Company Members
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, DOVA’s style will be explored through an emphasis on breath, strength, dynamic lyricism and musicality.
Afternoon classes will consist of four days of repertory and one day of DEVICES with Doug
The focus of the week will be learning repertory from our newest works in progress. Through this investigation, the class will experience the wide range of movement dynamics, and emotional nuance inherent in Doug's choreography.
Devices with Doug Varone
Doug will emphasize compositional structure and explore new devices for expanding and inventing material. A body of material will be created, varied and manipulated both, pushing towards new discoveries.
