Deep Dive! Contemporary Intensive for ages 17+



Berkshire Pulse (420 Park St, Housatonic, MA 01236, Housatonic MA)

**Deep Dive! Contemporary Intensive (Ages 17+)**

**August 14 – 18 |** *Advanced teens and undergrad students 17+, adults with advanced contemporary experience*

*Monday to Friday, 10am-4pm*

with Sayer Mansfield and Sydney McManus

Beginning each day with a somatic warmup and contemporary class, this intensive will lead advanced dancers through improvisation, partnering, and workshop spaces. Sayer and Sydney come together to teach and exchange with young, curious minds. As a pair, they hope to deconstruct our habits of what it means to “work” as a dancer and creator. Can we train and create from a place of play and joy? Can we take care while we push our physical and artistic boundaries? These are all questions that are at the core of how they wish to share in this space together. Come to the woods for a week of pleasure, play, expansive physicality.

**This program is intended for adults with intermediate/advanced dance training who are comfortable with partnering, improvisation, joyful risk-taking, and collaboration.*
