FLOW SPACE WORKSHOP WITH THE DASH ENSEMBLE'S GREGORY DOLBASHIAN

The DASH Ensemble is a New York City based contemporary dance group founded and directed by Gregory Dolbashian. Combining elements of modern, hip hop, floor work and physical theater, Dolbashian has created his own unique style of contemporary dance with an urban flair. The DASH seeks to bring out relatable human elements in all of its work using its complex and challenging movement language to express ideas about growth, love, loss, war, and determination.

FLOW SPACE: An atmosphere that allows for the act of “pure play” to help dance artists use more capacity, intellect, sense, courage, and imagination in their movement styles. Conducted by director of The DASH Ensemble, Gregory Dolbashian, the class is a highly developed series of improvisational tools and games that warms and pushes both the mind and the body to break habits and fulfill more presence. These exercises are all methods that Gregory has developed and utilized to create movement with The DASH. The artists learn confidence not just in themselves but also in the environment that they are a part of. Games and tasks work both on the individual and in tandem, so that Flow Space creates a community for progress, inspiration, and most of all, discovery.

OPEN COMPANY CLASS

We are extending our Countertechnique series by four classes! The additional dates are Nov 4, 16, 30, and Dec 7. Join us in Open Company Class with Guest Teacher ROSANNA TAVAREZ. Tavarez is a former Guest Artist with LACDC and 1 of 2 certified Countertechnique teachers based in Los Angeles.

The Countertechnique class is an intermediate/advanced contemporary technique class. It stretches, coordinates and strengthens the body, making the dancer sweat, build stamina and really move. The class starts with a recurring set of exercises, allowing dancers to investigate the Countertechnique principles in detail. The second half of the class consists of changing components, working towards luscious movement combinations and jumping at the end. The Countertechnique class results in dancers using less energy, losing their fear of taking risks and gaining speed in changing direction. Pre-Registration not required.
