Contemporary Dance Fundamentals Outside With Lea D’Arminio

September 19, 2020 @ 9:30 am – 10:30 am
The Haus of Glitter Performance Lab
97 Admiral Street
Providence RI
$13 single class / $50 series registration

Running weekly on Saturdays at 9:30 am from September 19th til October 17th. Outdoor classes are held at the Haus of Glitter Performance Lab + Parq at 97 Admiral Street, Providence, RI.

Dancers examine habitual and non-habitual movement patterns within the body and space through gentle warm-up exercises and short phrase work. Various contemporary dance techniques will be introduced weekly. Pace of the class is slow – with attention to detail and the needs of dancers. The class is geared towards absolute beginners/novice dancers. More experienced dancers may also find the class appropriate as a warm-up class or simply a chance to slow down their practice.

Lea D’Arminio is an Italian-American Providence/Boston based dancer, educator, and choreographer as well as a yoga instructor and fitness professional. From her very first ballet class at age 5 – movement and creativity has played an intrical part of Lea’s daily life and general happiness. As a teenager to young adult, Lea has had the honor to work with choreographers Dan Karaty, Wade Robson, Tyce Diorio and Brian Friedman. As a professional for over 10 years both at home and abroad, Lea has danced, choreographed and taught for GeaDanza of Trieste, Italy to Urbanity Dance in Boston. Since her move to Providence in late 2017, Lea has danced with and continues to perform in projects with Urbanity Dance, Natalie Johnson Dance, InProv Dance Project, Metamorphosis Dance Company, Mambo Pa Ti Dance Company, New Works Dance Company and Denizen Arts. With a strong foundation in classical ballet, Lea specializes in hip hop, afro-caribbean dance, commercial/street jazz, contemporary forms and modern dance. Lea continues to teach students of all ages and capabilities – from ages 3 to adult – in local studios and in school classrooms. She works hard to establish a judgment-free zone for all movers – emphasizing the importance of understanding, community and support in shared spaces. Lea is looking forward to a joyful return to AS220 this fall with street jazz & contemporary fundamentals!
