PLUNGE: Performance-based Seminar Program for International F-1 Students


PLUNGE is a weekly seminar course that uses Dance Theater principles to deliver material and performance strategies to enhance each individual dance artist's abilities.

• The first portion of class will focus on preparing the performing body through exercises focused on the musculoskeletal system, mind-body connection, and self-care. 
By adopting yoga philosophies, the class draws in keen body awareness, flexibility, strength, power, and balance.

• The second portion of class will explore theatrical and movement strategies to build choreography that will be performed at the end of each 3-month seminar cycle. Some of the performance elements include:

• Theater improvisation to enhance emotional & mental awareness, while exploring character development & igniting the imagination

• Movement improvisation to enhance physical awareness, movement vocabulary, & personal artistry

• Contemporary dance Choreography

• Hyper-physical complex phrase-work

• Floor-work sequences

• Contemporary partnering

 

• Length of program: 6 months. Program start date: the first day of each month all year round
