Master Classes & Workshops

Saturday, August 25. TITAS Presents a FREE Contemporary Master Class with Catherine Foster of Camille A. Brown & Dancers. Rooted in the African-American vernacular, this movement workshop led by Catherine Foster, a member of CABD, celebrates the power of African-American social dance and its impact and influence on American dance forms throughout history. Using JUBA (“pattin juba”) as a jumping off point, participants are taken on a social dance journey. From “the wing” to “the whip”, attendees investigate the ways communities used movement as a way of protest, liberation, and/or healing. By learning about the past, it is Camille’s hope that the spirit of expression through movement is embodied in our present day – providing the individual with a platform to celebrate their identity and to share their personal expression with the community of participants. All levels ages 12 and up. Students should be prepared for a rigorous, invigorating class. Click Walk ups welcome!

Saturday, October 20. TITAS Presents a Free Contemporary Master Class with members of Stephen Petronio Company. This master class focuses on building a rigorous and intelligent movement practice. Beginning with a warm-up that guides the participants to make a muscular and skeletal connection to their unique physicality, emphasis is placed on the articulation of the spine, opening of the joints, and the direction and flow of energy throughout the body and into space. Warm up is followed by phrases and variations of movement derived from Company Repertory, addressing its unique focus on dynamic sequencing, poly-rhythmic initiations, and a sense of fearlessness within a complex architectural form. Students should be prepared for a rigorous, invigorating class. Walk ups welcome! For more information and to register, click here. 10:30-12pm. Booker T.
