The Playground NYC allows dancers to experience various choreographic styles and ideas, engage with a new community of dancers, and gather resourceful information and inspiration from the array of choreographers involved. In turn, established choreographers are paid for their creative investigations, are given free space to explore new movements with professional dancers, and are provided with the opportunity to establish relationships with new dancers and fellow choreographers.
Andrea’s workshop helps dancers to access creativity with more ease, and create balance in their relationship to creativity in a dynamic world. Through guided visualization, improvisation, and contemporary choreography, dancers are invited to explore depths of internal sensation and sensitivity to space.
Andrea Ward is a contemporary choreographer from New York City. Her movement lives between fluid and sharp dynamic, driven by nature and emotional exploration. Her class focuses on internal study of creativity and mind-body harmony. She’s also a musician and filmmaker. Most recently she led a “Choreographic Lab” in Madrid, Spain for DANZA180. She’s also led classes in Paris and London, and has performed in Amsterdam and Italy. Andrea has studied with LaMichael Leonard of Bill T. Jones / Arnie Zane Dance Company, Enzo Celli, Jeff Docimo, Jiri Pokorny & Cindy Salgado of Kidd Pivot, Bryan Arias, Sidra Bell, Medhi Walerski, Doug Letheren of L-E-V / Sharon Eyal, Winifred Burnet-Smith of Hofesh Shechter, Jos Baker of Peeping Tom, and Niharika Senepati of Chunky Move.
