Event description

Description

Olivia Kissel is a vibrant voice in Contemporary Ethnic Dance, known for infusing concept-driven work with passionate expression and smooth technique. Her emotive and elegant approach to dance results in lyrical, dynamic stage presentations. Olivia explores the expressive potential of folkloric, urban, and classical dance forms in her solo performances, choreographies and theatrical productions, creating work that weaves a rich tapestry of movement, light and texture that is fresh, modern and relevant to both historical and current perspectives .

Renew you dance practice and be inspired by the creative side of things this early part of the year with a day of study with Olivia Kissel.

Workshops:

Lyrical and Lush

Focus: Technique for lyrical, musical expression; and layering with integrity and dynamism.

Layer your movement with integrity and dynamism in order to more clearly express the music and the

dramatic intention in your dance. This workshop focuses on musicality and composition using

quintessential elements of bellydance: layered movements, level changes, traveling steps, and isolations

to articulate the music.


Space: Dancing from the Inside-Out

Focus: Technique and Expression – can be geared toward solo, pairs or group work.

Move as a family, a nomadic tribe, or an entire people. Interweave flight, crave and hustle in an

astonishing fluidity of action. This workshop focuses on: traveling movement, floor work and working the

space inside as well as outside your body ~ Dancing from the inside-out. We will dig deeper into

mechanics, form, and musicality with traveling steps, spins, and exercises that will make you surrender to

music and the moment from the inside-out. Play with gravity and extend beyond your own body more

mindfully and soulfully through space.
