Interpretative Dance

dancer's picture

Liturgical or Interpretive dance is a course that teaches spiritual emphasis
on the movements of the body as instruments of praise and worship. Liturgical
dance is a sacred dance form that has been performed in celebrations of
weddings, triumphant victories and ceremonial rituals through out history in
Israel. The dances that this course will cover however will have a more
modern day approach than the traditional Jewish dances. The dances will be
accompanied by different types of music that is spiritually uplifting and
positive in its contents .The dancers will learn to how respond with an
appropriate movement that flows out of the music. Dancers will learn a short
choreographed piece and be introduced to performing improvisational movements
as well. The dance genres that make up liturgical dance are modern, modern
jazz and some afro modern dance styles. This is an open level course and
participants are not required to have any dance experience. The class will
begin at a slow to moderate pace beginning with a warm up of floor
excercises, stretch series and charge up with some cardio exercises prior to
covering the expressive portion of the dance. Participants are asked to limit
cell phone use while in class so that optimum time can be utilized.
Participants are asked not to bring small children or observers to rehearsals
so that the learning experience may not be interrupted. comfortable and
breathable attire is suggested. jeans, mini skirts and trousers can be
restrictive to movement and flexibility.The objective of this course is to
encourage individuals who desire to express themselves through movement but
have been afraid to do so and to inspire creative movement from the heart. It
my desire that we all have fun and discover a sense of wellness in the
process !
