Sunday, March 1, 12:00-1:30pm with Rohan Bhargava/Rovaco Dance Company
Translating our shared human experiences in a collaboratively cohesive environment, Rovaco aims to build community, spark vital conversations, and reflect on societal and interpersonal issues of today. Rovaco’s movement aesthetic is athletic, cathartic, and invigorating. Approaching contemporary floorwork through release, momentum, and expansion, they activate both the mind and the body using set exercises, improvisational scores, and physical phrase work. Come prepared to research and sweat!

Sunday, March 29, 12:00-1:30pm with Winston Dynamite Brown & Latra Ann Wilson
The DynamitExperience (TDE) is a collective seeking to create inclusive environments for participants to explore their own artistry and power based on the principle that dance is for the people. Class will pull from Brown’s training in postmodern and highly physical methodologies to access multiple threads at once. TDE challenges dancers to explore a greater range of motion, isolated and momentum driven exercises, set and improvised material, and a sense of grand scale. Together we will find a play between athleticism, performance and the joy in movement.
