About this event

Community Contemporary is rooted in The Click's mission to redefine rigor. Yes: dance can be highly technical and physically demanding. And yes: art can be very intellectual and nuanced. But most importantly: contemporary forms can be all of this, and more... and we can have FUN while we explore all of it. That is the type of rigor we are looking for.

Community Contemporary is an opportunity for all levels of movers to dive into improvisation, technique, and play while fostering relationships new and old, thus creating and/or expanding their creative community. If you are looking for a supportive environment to animate and excite the tiny inner child dancer within you: this class is it, regardless of your prior experience with dance.

This class series will be taught alternately by Alexandria Nunweiler and Angelina Benitez. Please see class schedule and individual class descriptions below.

*This program is presented in collaboration with The Dance Complex and is supported in part by funding from the Cambridge Community Foundation.

About the Classes:


This Click Class with Angie will focus on generating movement through games and exercises. We'll question: How can we value "play" in our training? We'll move individually and as a group as we navigate a variety of improvisational exercises and prompts. All levels & all bodies are welcome.


This class fights for your right to party. Led by curiosity, JAM pulls from contemporary and modern techniques to get all bodies moving to their internal rhythm with the intention to better understand what we are doing inside and outside of ourselves. You can expect improvisational play, juicy floorwork, maybe a few swear words, and a killer playlist.

About the Instructors:

Angie has immersed herself in teaching dance in the Greater Boston area at local studios, schools, and residencies. Her recent performance experience includes local arts festivals and events such as Verse / Visual, 24 Hour ChoreoFest, Salem Arts Festival, Art Walk with Luminarium, and more. Much of her work is focused on collaboration. When she's not teaching dance, you can find her working as a social media strategist, creating fiber art, and taking pole dance classes.

Alexandria also holds her 200 RYT which she brings into both the yoga and dance practice spaces as a framework for how she shows up.

About The Click:

Developed in 2021, The Click is a collaborative dance company and creative collective in Greater Boston. Its members are dancers whose primary medium of physical expression is through contemporary dance forms, but who experiment in many modes and genres of creativity. As a collective, The Click’s members are each deeply invested in answering the universally complex question: who am I and what am I doing here?

The Click contributes to the consistent presence of creativity in Boston and beyond in several ways: by educating pre-professional youth dancers, professional adult dancers and the dance-curious of any age; performing original creations several times a year at traditional and non-traditional venues across Massachusetts, New England and beyond; and by investing in the curiosity of those new to dance in Boston or new to dance in general by maintaining an open, inclusive and accessible community.
