WINTER SESSION: January 11-March 28th

This registration is for the 10 week Winter Session from January 11-March 28th. The first five weeks will be January 12th-February 9th with Oluwadamilare (Dare) Ayorinde, and the second five weeks will be February 23rd-March 23rd with Ogemdi Ude.

FIRST HALF with Oluwadamilare (Dare) Ayorinde:

Class will start with a guided warm up to center our bodies and mind. We will then move into improvisational tasked that will incorporate movement, voice and imagination. The improvisations will be a means to self discovery and movement invention.

Oluwadamilare (Dare) Ayorinde is Nigerian - Black freelance performing artist living in New Jersey. Since Rutgers University he has worked with Colleen Thomas, Bill Young, Stefanie Batten Bland, Kayla Farrish, The Trisha Brown Dance Company, Kyle Marshall and more. He has begun presenting work in NYC and New Jersey. Last year he was Dance on the Lawn's fifth Emerging Choreographer and a Chez Bushwick resident. He is named top 25 to watch in Dance Magazine for 2020.

SECOND HALF with Ogemdi Ude:

In this class, we will become physical storytellers. Using dance and dialogue, we will learn how to creatively share new and old narratives and build choreography skills for a variety of performance contexts. Bring an excited body, open mind, and pen and paper!

Ogemdi Ude is a Nigerian-American dance artist, educator, and doula based in Brooklyn. As an artist and educator, she supports others in investigating their cultural, familial, and personal histories - how they are embedded in their bodies and influence their everyday and performative movement.
