ABOUT OUR MASTER CLASS SERIES : I have (Misa) discovered that there is a whole world of dancers and artists that train and grow outside the realm of an academic setting. Yet, within academia there is a host of BRILLIANT masters. As a community service these artists are coming out into the community to share with us their special gifts and insights. Check back for information about master classes with Nancy Colohan and Holly Johnston.

13.0 Hard Core SonneBlauma Style of Danscz - presented by The Future Traditions Foundation.

TIME: Tuesdays 6:30-9:30

DATES: Months of August, September, February, March, June & July

PLACE: Montecito School of Ballet, 529 E Gutierrez St. Call (805) 569-0389 for information.

DESCRIPTION: Join us in our "process." This is our company class/rehearsal process. The first portion of class is a mixed level. As the class progresses it becomes more advanced. We encourage people to come and do as much as they can! The style is 100% dance unique in that it is an "intuited" process that draws from an extensive movement vocabulary. That means, when you come and engage, we are sensitive to who you are in time and space in an interconnected realm. What you bring to the moment informs what emerges in the experience. Our emphasis? You are absolutely perfect where you are in the moment...when you leave class...you will be just that much different, all that more aware. Presently we are engaged in workshoping a new work so expect to not only dance & move, but participate in the choreographic process.
