Contemporary Dance Outside @ Hause of Glitter Performance Lab
Oct 16 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

Balancing wildness and specificity, class will focus on bringing awareness to inner sensation as it paces creative expression to reveal the body’s instincts and inherent musicality. Full bodied dance phrases and ground movement will practice the coordination of effort and release in the body as a route to finding both our freest and deeply rooted dancing.
Stephanie Turner is a dance choreographer, performer and educator based in Providence, RI. Her work evolves from a deep curiosity for learning through the body, building community and using performance as a process of re-enchanting everyday life. She has taught Contact Improvisation and Contemporary Dance as an Adjunct Lecturer at Brown University and Salve Regina University, as an independent artist at Headlong, AS220, RISD and as a teaching fellow at Hampshire and Smith College. As the founder/director of The Movement Exchange she produced dance and theater events, collaborating with local and international artists.
