Movers and Dancers Needed to Assist with upcoming course on "Dance and Mythology"
Saturday, January 26th
2:00pm - 5:00pm
Space is limited, please RSVP to inquiries at hldance .org

Malcolm Shute is prepping to teach an online dance class at Towson University this summer on Dance and Myth, surveying some of the ways in which mythology has been choreographed over the years, and he is looking for movers of all ages and backgrounds to help him out. "Never danced before? Come anyway!—to be my students in two 3-hour workshops with a little lecture and a lot of moving. These classes will be videotaped. My online students will watch these videos online, listen to the instructions, and dance along with you virtually." This is the third set of classes he has recorded for online courses at TU, and the other two were apparently well received by his students. This will also be a unique opportunity for you to "discuss and move in response to various dances and mythological themes, including the hero cycle through the ballet Sleeping Beauty, creation myths through the ballet Rite of Spring by Nijinsky, themes of transformation in Cinderella—world’s most popular myth—through Maguy Marin’s danse nouvelle version, and others." The movement will be mostly led improvisation, with some warm up exercises drawn from Bartenieff Fundamentals. Light refreshments will be served. Questions? Please email the address listed above.

University Boulevard and Stadium Drive (see directions)
Metro: College Park and take the UMD Bus 104 to the Stamp Student Union, which is still a bit of a walk to the Center, about a half-mile, so please factor the walk time in to your schedule, or you can take a taxi from the metro. More info on UMD Dept.of Transportation's Shuttle UM page
