DSDT WORKSHOP SERIES August 21-25, 2017 Monday to Friday 10 AM - 4 PM
Technique in the morning, Workshops in the afternoon.
Join us for Summer! Deborah Slater Dance Theater will be offering a week-long workshop series for artists of all disciplines, taught by company members Heather Arnett, Colin Epstein, Anna Greenberg, Derek Harris, Meegan Hertensteiner, Jenny McAllister, and Artistic Director Deborah Slater. 
Our 2017 Summer Workshop series will feature technique Workshops in the morning and a selection of classes in the afternoon covering partnering, circus skills, repertory, character work, improvisation, and directing feedback.
Daily a la carte registration is available. 

MONDAY: Choreography Workshop - with teachers Anna Greenberg, Heather Arnett, Meegan Hertensteiner & Derek Harris. Students will explore their inherent movement qualities and the fundamentals of choreography in an environment that is welcoming, positive, and safe. A place where you can try out ideas, succeed and make mistakes, and ultimately make one small solo and one small group work.
TUESDAY: Partnering Workshop - with teachers Meegan Hertensteiner & Derek Harris. The day will begin with an hour of mixed level warm-up in the morning and after lunch, we will reconnect with our bodies and with partners and move into learning DSDT partnering repertory. At the end of the day, we will explore how to generate partnering material using tools and input everything learned throughout the day.
WEDNESDAY: Character Development Workshop - with teachers Jenny McAllister & Meegan Hertensteiner
THURSDAY: Acrobatics Workshop - with teachers Colin Epstein & Jenny McAllister. This day of the workshop will introduce dancers to acrobatic skills and concepts designed to expand their movement vocabulary. The day will begin with a release technique based class emphasizing inversions and floor work, and after lunch, we will isolate and explore individual acrobatic tricks and techniques.
FRIDAY: Repertory Workshop - with teachers Meegan Hertensteiner, Heather Arnett & Deborah Slater. We will have about an hour of mixed level warm up. We will then move into partnering fundamentals which will incorporate sharing weight, different ways to partner, and how to work with different partners. We will eventually move into learning some basic moves and fun “tricks” and how to do them safely. After lunch, we will reconnect with our bodies and with partners and move into learning DSDT partnering repertory with directing feedback from Artistic Director Deborah Slater.
