Workshop Description

In these two classes we will explore intricate coordination, while paring down our embodiment of movement to its spatial and sensory elements. We will investigate what it means to have an integrative dance practice, using techniques that emphasize mind/body awareness and alignment through imagery. In a simple warm-up, designed to bring space, direction, and flow of energy through the joints, we will work with breath, form, and oppositional forces in the body. Full-bodied phrase work will draw on internal and external geometries (both imagined and real), and on our personal and collective senses of time.

Cori Olinghouse

Cori Olinghouse was a member of the Trisha Brown Dance Company from 2002-2006. During her time there she performed as a soloist at the Bolshoi Ballet and taught material to Etoile dancers of the Paris Opera Ballet for Trisha Brown’s 2004 creation, O Composite. She teaches regularly at the Trisha Brown Dance Studios and Dance New Amsterdam in New York City, and she has been a guest teacher at the London Contemporary Dance School, Bennington College, and Sushi Visual and Performing Arts Gallery, among others. Since 1997, Cori has maintained a duet history in improvisation with Susan Sgorbati and is currently involved in teaching and performance residencies with The Emergent Improvisation Project. Her own work has been presented at Bennington College, The Brooklyn Museum of Art, Flynn Center for the Performing Arts, and the Improvisation Festival in New York City. Cori’s approach to dance is influenced by her study of the Alexander Technique. In September, she joined the Manhattan Center for the Alexander Technique to pursue her certification to become a teacher.
