Moving Pictures Saturday ECD workshop-2-5
Dances are a sequence of figures, moving pictures that combine to tell a story. Susan will offer tips on how to move beyond simple execution
of figures in order to think about the bigger moving picture of the entire dance, how to visualize the bigger and how some of the tiny things can
contribute to your enjoyment of the dance and the overall beauty of it. We’ll also look at the stories behind the dances – what we know
about historical dances that helps us understand and appreciate the choreography, and you’ll come away with background on how newer
compositions came to be, in particular, the connection between the music and the dance, the composer of the tune and the choreographer.
