Yellow stars and blue diamonds, start to shake off the winter, dissolve the "I", spin around then fall over, rumors of jazzercise, walk into the room and take off your shoes HEAVY ROTATION is about to begin
We are interested in working in a connective mode. We want to dance in a room with you and you and you. We are interested in what you have to say and the way you say it. We want to think, feel, and move. We want to get sweaty and dirty. This is a way for all of us to have a voice and for all of us to listen. This is a way of connecting to our roots that will move us forward.
What: HEAVY ROTATION is a dance class series coordinated by dance artists Kathleen Keogh and Noelle Stiles. The series will provide students with a rotating selection of teachers that will facilitate class over a four and a half month period of time. Every two weeks a different person will facilitate class. Tracy Broyles will kick-off the series on Sunday Feb. 15th. Other participating artists are: Emily Stone, Woolly Mammoth Comes to Dinner , Mizu Desierto, Wendy Hambidge, Tahni Holt, Katrina O'Brien, Paige McKinney, Noelle Stiles and Shannon Bierly Hallberg.
How: $12 / drop-in
$60 / 6 class card (cash/check)
Why: We see a desire in Portland's expanding dance community for more opportunities to come together. This is a sustainable way for people to have an opportunity to teach or workshop an idea while providing consistent, diverse and challenging studio practice for students. Or simply, this is an opportunity to inspire each other doing what we love together on a regular basis.
