AXIS Dance Company: Summer Intensive & Physically Integrated Dance Teacher Training

  • AXIS Dance Company

Module 2: Choreography and Performance (Thursday-Saturday, August 4-6) $300

Each day will start with a technique class, learning material and dance sequences, to develop dancers technique, memory, coordination, and movement qualities and dynamics. Dancers will have the opportunity to learn company repertoire to gain an insight to the tasks and skills used to devise work in the company's current repertoire. The skills from class will then be used to develop dancers own choreographic interests to investigate their own practice. Utilizing these skills, each dancer will be guided through a choreographic exploration from their own concept through a process of devising, creating and developing choreographic material. The works created will be rehearsed and developed, with an opportunity to present the work as part of a sharing for peers and friends of the AXIS Dance Company community.

Dance NYC Town Hall Series

  • The Duke on 42nd Street

AXIS Dance Company will be joining Dance/NYC for a series of conversations at the intersection of disability and dance.

We invite you to work with us to create new places for disabled artists in NYC's cultural landscape.

In the series kick-off, they will explore dance making and artistry with internationally renowned integrated dance choreographer and AXIS Guest Artistic Director Marc Brew and dance pioneer Dianne McIntyre. They will explore such questions as: Who gets to dance? Where do dancers dance? How does disability and other aspects of identity affect where dancers get to dance?
