Jul 20 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Prime Action // Thursdays @6:30-8:00pm // $13 per class; $60 for 6 classes

Prime Action is a contemporary form based in African Diasporic and modern dance traditions that work towards enlivening a presence of be-ing in the body. The class incorporates floor work to develop an agile and responsive central column through the activation and articulation of the pelvis, torso (spine/rib cage), neck and head. Standing center focuses on the coordination and strengthening of the extremities with exercises for the hands and arms, legs and feet. Traveling work integrates various elements of floor and center work with progressive movements, phrases, and improvisational explorations. Finally, Phrase work brings together all technical components into choreographic phrase work that encourages mind/body/spirit expressivity.

Open Level Contemporary African Dance w/ Mekbul J. Tahir// Fridays @ 6:30-7:30pm // $13 per class; $60 for 6-class package

The technique Acogny is the only recognized contemporary dance technique created in Africa. It was created by Germaine Acogny, the mother of African contemporary dance. Based on traditional African dance (especially Senegal and Benin) and Western dance techniques (classical ballet, release, and Graham technique), the philosophy of this technique is about identity: placing yourself inside the community and nature, and being aware of your own body. The technique respects every different body, and addresses life and the connection between human being and nature. Joy, play, love and music are the fundaments of the spirit of the technique.

NT4L36991Mekbul Jemal Tahir is an international choreographer, dancer, and teacher. He is one of the founding members of Adugna Community Dance Theatre Company, which is based in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Since completing a five-year training program accredited by Middlesex University (UK) in 2001, he has been performing and teaching African contemporary dance, contact improvisation, and community dance and theatre in Ethiopia and abroad. Among others, his projects have included the 2005 Kin-Addis Project in the DRC, Ethiopia, and France, and the 2006 Can Do Can Dance Project in Hamburg, Germany. In 2007, he performed a lead role in As the Mother of a Brown Boy, which opened at Chickenshed Theatre Company in London and later traveled to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where it was nominated for two awards. He is also one of the dancers who were selected to study Germaine Acogny’s dance and certified to teach her technique. Now a resident of Massachusetts, he divides his time between work with Adugna in Ethiopia and projects in Africa, Europe, and the United States.

Fab Lab Foundations 2: Introduction to the CNC Router @ AS220 Labs
Jul 22 @ 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Register Here 

This workshop is for anyone interested in using a CNC Router for digital fabrication, specifically the ShopBot machine for computer-controlled cutting and routing. The course covers an introduction to the ShopBot, Computer-Aided Design software to design projects for the machine, creation of 2D tool paths for the machine using PartWorks, and basic machine operation and safety.  You will learn how to safely operate the machine on your own, so that you may use the machine independently after completing the training and signing up for membership.

Our machine is a ShopBot PRS standard 96 with a cutting area of 96″ (x-axis) x 48″ (y-axis) x 6″ (z-axis). The machine is capable of machining 2D parts (profile, pockets, drilling) and making 3D carvings.  This workshop only covers 2D tool paths, not 3D carvings.

This workshop consists of two parts, 1 3-hour instructional session and a followup session on the machine where you run a project on the machine.

Prerequisites
While it’s not mandatory, we strongly encourage students to have experience with vector design. Not familiar with using computers at all? We also offer a basic computer training workshop

Modern  Dance for the Mind,Body, and Soul with Nicole Laliberte// Mondays @7:00-8:30pm // $13 per class; $60 for 6 classes 

Class will begin lying on the floor, gently exploring natural movement patterns, drawing upon the somatic principles of Bartenieff Fundamentals and Feldenkrais Awareness through Movement.  Standing exercises in the center emphasize articulation of the joints, strength and fluidity of the core and spine, and the body’s natural breath and momentum. Across the floor combinations focus on rhythm, elevations, turns, and changes in level, direction, and dynamic.  Influences include the traditional techniques of Horton, Limon, and Cunningham with constant attention to contemporary safe dance practices.  While some dance experience is ideal, this class is adaptable to each student’s level of experience and anatomical structure.

     AnnDitmarsHuyck-1 Ann offers a traditional ballet class with a special focus on musicality, epaulement, and the joy of fully embodied movement.  Her barre exercises allow time to warm up slowly while developing the alignment, strength, and precision  that create freedom in the center.  Dancers slow down for the the beauty and breath of adage before progressing to the speed of petit allegro and the fun of moving through space.   Ann especially enjoys discovering and sharing the “movement” in ballet, and she offers options throughout the class so dancers can tailor exercises to the level of challenge they each need.
