We are excited to announce a set of two 2-hour master classes with dance artist Jesse Zaritt and soundFORMovement composer Michael Wall.

Class will begin with practices to release excess tension and invite wonder. Improvisational and choreographed exercises and phrase work generate radial connectivity and clarity, allowing us to research ways to exaggerate the sensations of being in a multi-dimensional body. We will fall into and out of lush, decadent dance and sound experiences. - Jesse Zaritt

Accompanying for Jesse’s class is one of those found treasures that an artist finds only a few times in life. The partnership is led with confidence and mutual trust, which allows me to create complicated electronic music as easily as a quiet ballad with voice and acoustic piano. I am utterly in love with our classes together. - Michael Wall

Class will begin with a mix of familiar, functional movement patterns exploring body availability, space occupied, and space created through improvisation and set ideas. After generating muscular warmth, we will continue on to technical phrase work, both standing and floor-centric, drawing attention to momentum, efficiency, and skeletal initiations. We work to expand our limits through a wide range of athletic phrases that are largely locomotive, involving weight shifts, directional changes, and exploring the body’s relationship to gravity.

Together we will create a shared experimental space where mistakes and individuality are welcome. You will sweat.
