The Technique class is for adult dancers with a little or no experience and is a great place to start if you are coming back to dance or have never created dance before and incorporates ideas from Limon and Cunningham techniques.  The class will move through a warm up that builds strength and clarifies alignment principals followed by fluid phrases with an emphasis on performance quality, focus and presence.  Participants will get a chance to create collaboratively and explore the basic elements of dance.  The Performance Workshop will focus on a collaboratively created work of choreography over the six weeks.  The Composition Workshop is for choreographers at all levels who are interested in exploring a variety of methods for creating dances with a focus on the craft and structure of making dances and an emphasis on learning how to craft a complete work from a finite amount of material.

Kelley Donovan’s work has been named in the Top 10 performances of the year by The New York Times, Boston Globe, The Boston Herald and The Boston Phoenix.  She has performed work by Rozann Kraus, Liz Lerman and Ann Carlson and has taught dance at BCAE, MIT, Dance Complex and Umass Boston. Her choreography has been produced by World Music, MIT and The Cunningham Studio, Joyce SoHo, Movement Research and the 92nd St. Y in New York City.
