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, Thursdays year round and Wed. in NYC Winter and Spring. In the summer we offer day-long dance retreats. 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. Experienced Dancers typically participate in either Rigorous or MiXt Level groupings, and all movers 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 (6-7 sessions). Drop-in classes continue to be an option at 7:00 PM throughout the season, for those who can't commit to the full performance project (rehearsals for performers continue after class until 9:00 or 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.
Performance Project participants must be 18 or older, though mature younger dancers are welcome to drop in for classes, or those 10-14 can join us for our Master Class Series for Dancers 10-14 years of age.
The Body Sessions (currently on 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.
Thank you to those of you who came to our Performance Project Fall 2018, particularly our dancers and Guest artists Indah walsh and Diana Deaver - It was a tremendous night and season!!
