The Experience Dance Program
A Series of Free Community Classes

 

CHOP SHOP: Bodies of Work is proud to partner with The City of Bellevue Parks and Community Services Department to offer the FREE Experience Dance Program! These free, unique, and fun dance classes serve as companion events to the CHOP SHOP dance festival, held February 17 & 18 at Meydenbauer Center Theatre. All Experience Dance Program participants receive a reduced price $5 ticket to the 2018 festival performance of their choice!

 

Reading Dance is your chance to engage directly with festival artists as they discuss the craft of choreography. Join the dancers of The Stone Dance Collective and Artistic Director and choreographer Eva Stone or Alicia Mullikin, choreographer, dancer, teaching artist, and Artistic Director of MORENA, as they demystify and reveal the creative process behind contemporary dances. Discover the type of movement language contemporary dance uses, learn different ways that dances are formed, and ask questions of the artists themselves. Reading Dance is open to all ages and abilities.

 

Introduction to Modern Dance is a fun dance technique class for those interested in learning basic modern dance movement vocabulary - no previous dance experience necessary! Teaching artists Eva Stone or Alicia Mullikin lead participants through a fun series of exercises that explore the type of movement presented at CHOP SHOP: Bodies of Work. Introduction to Modern Dance is open to all over the age of 8 and all abilities. Please dress in comfortable clothing.
