Cultivating Art

Comment

Dear Friends and Supporters,

It is an honor for me to be able to sustain and support dancers in the delicate task of cultivating their awareness of themselves as individuals, becoming thankful for their strengths and accepting of their weaknesses. When I see a dancer on stage, I feel that every movement reveals and expresses his/her reason for living. As a viewer, that feeling — the vitality, the power of expression — is what attracts me to a dancer on stage. That's why I created the DANCEDRAMA LABORATORY WORKSHOP SERIES! http://www.AnabellaLenzu.com/workshops

The May Lab (May 3, 10, 24 & 28 / Sat. from 9:30am-1:30pm) - covers Voice/Acting and Dance Technique. The June Lab (June 7, 14, 21 & 28 / Sat. from 9:30am-1:30pm) covers Dance Technique and AL/DD Repertory. The July Lab (July 5, 12, 19 & 26/ Sat. from 9:30am-1:30pm) covers Choreography and Improvisation. The July Lab (July 7, 8, 9 &10/ Mon-Thu 10am-1pm) covers Methodology of Teaching Dance. JOIN US OR HELP US SPEAD THE WORD!!!!
