July 12- Aug 1

Strictly Seattle ONLINE

EMBODIMENT / COMMUNITY / GROWTH

Strictly Seattle Online is a three-week virtual gathering ground for dancers of all levels and backgrounds. The program is being designed in real-time by Seattle to offer space to move and process together through an embodied practice. You can choose from a full schedule of daily classes, creative workshops, and opportunities to engage in dialogue. This festival is a chance to cultivate resiliency by committing to a daily practice and integrating your thoughts, emotions, and experiences with your body.

class offerings

For the past 24 years, Strictly Seattle was structured as a fully immersive festival that culminated in a final performance. In response to shifting needs, Strictly faculty and staff have opted for a more open framework to allow you to choose your own adventure.

Instead of specific tracks, you can design your own festival experience by mixing and matching four different daily technique classes, three week-long creative process classes, and one three-week hip-hop intensive.

Check below for a full list of offerings.

 

MORNING CLASSES

Seattle-based artists working across contemporary techniques

Alyza DelPan-Monley, Ron Gatsby, Natascha Greenwalt, Noelle Price, Lex Ramirez, Zoe Scofield, Gilbert Small, Lavinia Vago, Fox Whitney, and Tracey Wong

M-F / 10 – 11:15 AM Pacific Time (PT)

MORNING CLASSES

Start your day with open-level morning classes designed to get you in your body, deepen your practice, and learn something new.

This open-level class focuses on foundational movements such as isolations, flexibility, and syncopated movements in addition to helping dancers develop performance quality needed to take their dance goals to the next level.
If you’ve ever dreamed of enhancing your performance skills, dancing like your favorite artist, or expressing your inner dance-star, this class is for you.

Natascha Greenwalt

Approaching Ballet through GYROTONIC®

It was while training with LINES Ballet that Natascha first experienced the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® method and fell instantly in love. This uplifting mind-body practice allows movers of all levels to find strength and length within the body and spine by opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion and improving strength through movement efficiency. Grab a mat, chair, some weights (or full water bottle or can of beans), and a thera-band (or a pair of tights/leggings), we will move through a modified tower class and ballet barre.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:

Natascha Greenwalt (she/her) is a Seattle based performer, teaching artist, choreographer and GYROTONIC® Instructor. In 2005 she graduated magna cum laude from Cornish College of the Arts as a Kreielsheimer Scholarship recipient and has performed with companies such as Spectrum Dance Theater and House of Verlaine.

This year marks Coriolis Dance’s 12th season for which she is the co-artistic Director and co-founder along with Christin Call.

Together they have commissioned and created works for eight fully self-produced shows that curate a larger vision of the capabilities of ballet as an artistic medium with inherent technical rigor. In the 35+ works in its repertoire, Coriolis uses ballet technique as a self-aware vocabulary that, through manipulation and molding, is contextualized with contemporary issues. Through her work on Coriolis she has received numerous choreographic residencies and awards. Most recently her work Danses des Cygnes was co-produced through Velocity Dance Center and featured in Dance Magazine. Natascha continues to explore matters of the heart through emotionally driven technical contemporary ballet.

 

Noelle Price

Afro-Contemporary

Let this class be an exploration of African Dance principles and its interaction with European diasporic pathways. Together we will release the need for bound structure, exhaust ourselves in grounding rhythms, and prepare for the energetic return of our abandoned vitality.

Noelle Price uses the term Afro-Contemporary as a reference to students seeking to understand the classes’ foundational influences. While Noelle is not an African dance teacher, she herself recognizes the ways diasporic movement presents itself in her dance philosophy and chooses to acknowledge this in the classification of her class.

Zoe Scofield

Technique as a Vehicle

This class explores breath, length, spatial awareness, and rhythm, finding line through dynamic opposition, and using weight for sequencing and coordination. This class uses imagery and sensation to go deeper into how each dancer’s body can utilize the tools of technique’s structure. A contemporary approach to modern technique. We combine musicality, visual and physical metaphors in both improvisation and structured forms as a vehicle to surprise and further each dancer’s potential.
This approach to technique as a dynamic movement practice allows dancers to find their unique physicality and move beyond how movement looks and towards how it functions for them; giving them agency, expanding their physical toolbox and connecting dancers to their fullest potential. It is my desire to help participants foster a body that is available, aware and in command of its senses, intuition, and physicality. For dancers with about 2 years of technical training/experience in any form.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
2015 Guggenheim Fellow ZOE SCOFIELD is a dance and visual artist based in Seattle Washington since 2002. In 2005 Zoe began working with video and visual artist Juniper Shuey on video, photographic and dance collaborations shown in visual art galleries, museums and theaters.

Lavinia Vago


Redefining Technique: a contemporary practice
We will accept the framework of technique as a healing practice: a grounding practice for your body in connection to the floor. We will discover our physical knowledge together while rethinking space in the current moment, and how our bodies choose to move inside of it. We will create time to be, to feel, to move, to stay still, to exhaust ourselves alone but together. Music, instincts, and imagination will be our guides to create a safe space to exist in dance: this is our technique. Anything is possible here.

CREATIVE PROCESS INTENSIVES

Alyza DelPan-Monley

DESCRIPTION:

This rehearsal process explores how to activate our minds more while moving, and our bodies more while thinking. As we continue to interface through screens, I find myself in static states while I’m reading or in Zoom meetings. I focus solely on my front-facing body that is viewable to the frame. But as multi-dimensional curious being, how do we continue to access our expansiveness and curiosity – internally be exploring ourselves, and externally by compassing our relation to the external world.

Each day in this project, we will go on an audio walking guided movement practice, taking ourselves outside into stimulating spaces, while further stimulating ourselves with curiosities and thoughts from the audio-guide. We’ll play and wonder and metabolize information with our dancing bodies, as we lean into the ripe state of the unknown, and know that there is movement even in uncertainty and there is a lot to be learned from asking your body to be in space, in motion, and in critical thought.

Alice Gosti

LIMINAL

What if the world was our stage? What if our houses were our stages? Our rooms, our bathrooms, our closets? What if we used the ramps, staircases, cornices, archways. At this moment live concert dance can’t happen. How do we conceive and create material in direct response to the space we are in, the atmospheres and the landscapes that this architecture holds in itself? We will explore looking at the difference between integrating movement into a place and creating movement inspired by the space. During this workshop/class, I will be sharing with you not only strategies and ways to work site-specifically but also ways to create new memories and find magic in those spaces we think we know very well.
 
For the last couple months our houses, our homes, our intimate spaces have become public.
 
How do these private spaces, intimate spaces, personal spaces become performance spaces?


ALICE GOSTI

Zoe Scofield

DESCRIPTION:

Zoe’s creative process is centered around her interest in “future ancestors”. What are we creating now that will shape the ancestors we will be for our future selves and communities? We will explore dance as a way of world-making that moves through practice to embodied reality.

Participants will be working within a dynamic physical range and experience- building on their bodies’ knowledge and unique set of expressions. We will be approaching world making in / with our bodies, technology (whatever you have access and comfort with), and intangible objects and artifacts that we will use to create an environment wherever we are. The process will include bringing in the work of other artists who inspire us, daily drawing, collecting, mapping, movement, and creating practices that we will share with each other. Practices could include costume making, make-up, collage, painting, drawing, sculpting, photography, walking practice, and of course- dance!

Visiting guest artists will join our classes throughout the week to talk about their work as it relates to world-making, historically, and currently. Guests include artistic luminaries Bebe Miller, Liz Lerman, Sara Brown, Raja Feather Kelly, and Jaamil Kosoko.

Participants should have access to space that they are able to move in (doesn’t need to be large.), and some amount of wall space for drawing.

From when you purchase your registration through the first week of Strictly Seattle (ending on July 17th) we can transfer 100% of the registration fees you paid toward registration for the festival in 2021. Please make this request in writing to Shirley at operations@velocitydancecenter.org by July 17th. 

Our policies are structured this way to give as much flexibility for our participants while still being able to cover the costs of running the festival. Our biggest cost is hiring and paying teaching artists a fair wage for their time. Your registration fees are providing work for the Seattle-based artists on faculty, and supporting a small arts non-profit. Thank you for supporting artists right now.

What if I don't have a computer or tablet?

Let us know if you need help with accessing a computer, internet, space, or any other resource you need to participate in Strictly. We’ll reach out to our networks and work with you to put together the support you need. Please contact erin@velocitydancecenter.org
