MiXt Co. is our signature class series and performance project. Drop in classes are offered year round (currently most Mondays at 7:00 PM fall winter and spring - We offer day-long retreats during the summer). During our performance project seasons (fall and spring), a weekly class and rehearsal process ending in an informal performance for full project participants is an option many dancers in our community eagerly take advantage of. Dancers in groupings by Rigorous level, MiXt level and/or Gentle level, each work with choreographers once per week during the season. Dancers typically participate in either Rigorous or MiXt Level groupings AND all are welcome in the gentle level group despite previous experience
Choreographers create a short work for those able to commit to the season for each group (6-8 sessions). Drop-in classes begin at 7:00 PM, anytime throughout the season, for those who can't commit to the full performance project (rehearsals continue after class until 9:15 PM). The program strives to be a catalyst between NYC and CT choreographers, dancers, dance enthusiasts and audiences. Choreographers gain access to new communities of movers. Participants have access to quality contemporary, modern and/or classical practice and process, while our local audience will enjoy the variety created and presented.
MiXt Co. Classes Dance classes at The Loft & MiXt Co. Class + Performance Project are offered for those with prior dance or movement experience (those with more limited experience are welcome to try the Gentle Group offering after Yoga on Thursday nights). Performance Project participants must be 16 or older, though mature younger dancers are welcome to drop in for classes.
MiXt Co. in NYC kicked off in spring 2018 - and we'll update here with upcoming plans as space, dates and teachers are confirmed.
The Body Sessions (currently on temporary hiatus) are master-class offerings, each taught by different practitioners who allow us to dive into deep explorations of functionality, body-mind connection or distinct physical practices, which continue to feed and educate our community of dancers and movers and compliment our class offerings.
Subsidized rate for drop-in classes, project fees and workshops, which is available to professional performers, artists, educators, students, seniors, NYC commuters and other affiliated members, helps make participation in MiXt Co. affordable for everyone. YMCA members can come to Thursday Yoga for just $5 supplement to membership per class (or $10 for Yoga and dance sessions during Performance Project season).
