Friday, June 23: 1:30-3:30 pm: Choreographic Processes - Two Fold
Come have fun exploring the inner workings of creating choreography through a two prong approach. First, we will investigate the processes that go into creating “traditional” Middle Eastern choreography, including analyzing music, organizing your arsenal of moves, and using improvisation to create choreography. Then we will shift into experimental processes, such as fusing street dance and Middle Eastern dance and employing the rhizome as a metaphor and source of inspiration. Skill level: All levels.
