Looking for a fun way to get moving? Puksta Alum Patrycja Humienik (CU Denver ’17) is offering “Moving Toward,” the first workshop in a three-part dance improvisation series via Zoom this Saturday, April 25 at 10 AM.
As a Puksta scholar, Patrycja combined her passion for dance with social justice advocacy by developing the Denver chapter of Dances for Solidarity, a national initiative sharing dance through letter writing with people in solitary confinement.
We’re so grateful to Patrycja for facilitating this virtual workshop, and we look forward to exploring dance improvisation with her!
Here is a detailed description of Moving Toward from the event page:
Let’s dance together, from wherever we are. You are invited to *Moving Toward,* the first in a series of 3 virtual improvisation-focused workshops: Moving Toward, Moving From, Moving For. Moving Toward explores invocation, where we are going or hope to go. What are we moving toward?
All levels welcome, whether or not you identify as a ~dancer~.
Class will start with a short freewrite before warming up and moving together a la Zoom. We’ll play with repetition, imitation, softening, and pause. No dance class experience necessary.
By donation (Venmo @Patrycja-Humienik), $1-25 sliding scale. 50% of proceeds go to the Seattle Artist Relief Fund Amid COVID-19. Please RSVP here; you will receive Zoom info about the class via email.:)
Moving From, part 2, is about digging in, getting curious, investigating from where we move. In Moving For, third in the series, we will play with movement as dedication, devotion, honoring. Join for 1 or all.
