We'll warm up our bodies and minds with stretching, exercises and group work, then build movement guided by Hope's expertise and encouragement and the student's interests and imaginations. Hope has been teaching since 1998, and studied and performed modern dance, ballet and improvisation since 1980, most recently choreographing and performing with New Dance Studio in Portland.
MODERN DANCE IMPROVISATION
Combining technique and imagination, we'll explore our own voice in solo and group movement. Hope has been teaching since 1998, and studied and performed modern dance, ballet and improvisation since 1980, most recently choreographing and performing with New Dance Studio in Portland.
DANCE MOVEMENT FOR TEENS
Engaging for those new to dance and for experienced movers.
The class progresses from familiar pedestrian movements to guided improvisations,
movement theater games, and creating choreography. Hoffman will also teach short
pieces of her choreography, known for its accessibility and originality, and
provide live fiddle music. This class is based on sessions
taught at Freeport High School.
