12:15-14:15 – Mira – Soft Skills Can Be Hard
Great movement vocabulary makes good movers, but being a great artist includes so much more. How do you stop time, make people need to watch you? There are so many skills we are expected to learn intuitionally as dancers, such as, observation, timing, spatial processing, multi-tasking, tracking, ensemble cohesion etc. These skills may come easy to some and seem impossible to intuit for others. In this class Mira works on honing your intuition as a dancer, with active exercises that challenge your brain, layer your cognitive skills, and activate your “spidey-sense”. Become a shining star by sharpening your ability to focus, make quick decisions, listen to movement, and freeze time.
