VIM VIGOR SUMMER INTENSIVE
AUGUST 5 - 16, 2019 in NYC
VIM VIGOR's SUMMER PROGRAM is in response to the need for contemporary dance-theater based education in the greater NYC area. The PROGRAM is anchored in the company's commitment to activating the whole of the performer, from the extremes of virtuosic dance to the fluid awareness of emotion and experience.
VIM's program is focused on professional development with daily contemporary floorwork classes that improve dancers' ability to access their natural stealth with power into and out of the floor, their athleticism to move with efficiency and healthy alignment, and their artistry to work with context, emotional impulse and the ensemble. Afternoons are dedicated to workshops focused on improvisation, contact partnering and momentum based mechanics, VIM VIGOR repertory, dance theater exploration, creative exchange with the company, and roundtable community discussions. And new this year ,we are adding morning acting classes prior to the physical aspects of the day, to provide each dancer with in-depth theatrical training.
In addition to VIM's incredible artists teaching classes and workshops, we are delighted to have several special guests join us from around the world including Victoria P. Miranda from Spain. Other guest teachers to be announced shortly!

CUTTING EDGE TRAINING
WE WILL ACCEPT APPLICATIONS THROUGH THE END OF JUNE
or until we reach CAPACITY
SPECIAL GUEST /// VICTORIA P MIRANDA from Spain
international artist / teacher / choreographer
The class is highly physical with a lot of traveling and sequences that require a sense of power, music and energy.
By exploring different ways of merging into and out of the floor and using the speed and acrobatics sequence, we will investigate different dynamics and qualities of movement, and participants will learn how to accumulate more energy.
My main point of departure is the “ recycling materials “ and making long sequence to work out the stamina. Also the isolation of individual body parts and use the centre as a departure point to movement.
Trying to avoid the same patterns of moving and finding new skills which can help us to feel maybe a “new you moving”. Surprising ourselves.
We will work about our individual strong presence.
Let us fly with our imagination………..
