DESCRIPTION: This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to do a group class outdoors with lighted LED Isis Wings at sunset. This is a technique class rather than a full choreography class. The class objective is to create a video dance for Show 2021. The theme is ..... CATHARSIS with the emphasis on RELEASING ..... This has been a hell of a year. Some of us lost contact with people, or lost loved ones, or lost opportunities. Sometimes we couldn't adequately celebrate something that we wanted or needed to celebrate, like weddings or graduations. Yes, much was gained, and there have been many silver linings, but this will be a piece about the collective release of the weight of this year. This isn't a talking class - we are just going to dance - and we need to! You will learn moves and short combinations and you will be filmed in groups. The footage will later be set to music. Isis wings moves and combinations are simple when taken apart, so this piece will be less mentally taxing and more .... cathartic and fun. Just before the darkness of night you will be given wings and light! It is metaphoric and literal. The energy will be sparkly and celebratory. After all, this will be our first class together in a long time!! A little will be filmed every week in June. Everyone who enrolls will get wings and a matching costume on the first day of class and you will wear the costume to class starting on Week Two. I will be choosing the costume and wing colors for you. Please note that attendance is sorta mandatory in this class, especially if you have never worked with wings. One absence will be allowed if you want to be in the video.
LOCATION: Sachem Field. These classes will not be recorded.
