Composition for Adults with Mary Armentrout

By October 6, 2022 No Comments

An opportunity for emerging choreographers everywhere!

This class is held in person at Danspace. It is a combination of class/lab time, independent rehearsal time, and feedback time.  You will embark on the creation of a dance after a period of small studies and after settling on a topic that interests you, guided by Mary Armentrout, award-winning, internationally-acclaimed choreographer.  This class is open to teens and adults.

Mary Armentrout is a teacher, choreographer, dancer, and Feldenkrais Practitioner and the director of the Mary Armentrout Dance Theater (MADT).  Over the years she has taught movement and dance to many varieties to people ages 4 to 60+.  Her understanding of movement and the human body is informed by her decades of study of Contemporary Modern Dance, Ballet, Butoh, Aikido, Authentic Movement, Alexander Technique, and of course the Feldenkrais Method.  Working across disciplines, her experimental choreographic works attempt to viscerally engage and complicate aspects of intentionality, presence, identity, and being-in-the-world for her audiences and recently garnered an Isadora Duncan Dance Award.  Her work has been presented at numerous venues all over the San Francisco Bay Area, as well as across the US and the UK, Europe, and China, recently touring to the Brighton Fringe and appearing in the San Francisco International Arts Festival.
