DELVING MINI-WORKSHOP: TAP & Dance Education with DORRANCE DANCE (Virtual)
Join Ann Biddle (Director of DEL at Jacob’s Pillow), Felice Santorelli (DEL Facilitator), and Nicholas Van Young, Special Guest Artist (Associate Director, Dorrance Dance) in the exploration of dance education practices dedicated to artistry, collaboration, and music and dance-making in a 2.5-hour embodied and interactive Zoom workshop.
Inspired by the newly created work by Nicholas Van Young with original music by Dorrance Dance musicians and developed in residence at the Pillow Lab this past winter, participants will draw links to body percussion and movement through engaging in embodied exploration, playful discovery, and collaborative artistry.
Created in partnership with the Dance Education Laboratory (DEL), this online workshop series explores a choreographer’s voice through the DEL model, which emphasizes a comprehensive and inclusive approach to embodied learning. Each workshop explores a choreographer’s work through multiple entry points, including the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Interactive site, in order to design accessible lessons and activities for all dance learners.
Zoom | July 17 | 10am-12:30pm Eastern | $20; financial assistance available | Open to all | Dance educators, college dance students, classroom teachers, and professional dancers encouraged.
