Students will improve their technique through specific exercises and acrobatics.

Course Content (Syllabus)
In Movement III students continue to explore, broaden their horizons and improve their relationship to space, shape, time, rhythm, energy and gravity using physical theater and dance techniques. Students activate their bodies and imagination while realizing the organic relationship between movement, breath, sound and speech. Students approach monologues, excerpts from plays, poems and improvised texts from a physical standpoint; exploring the possibilities of expression, live presence and communication within the group. This semester students will create choreography and do scene work based on time, space and gravity as experienced in dreams. All levels of the Movement courses (I-IV) contain exercises which focus on improving physical fitness (strength, flexibility, stamina) accompanied by games that foster trust, readiness, rhythm, expression, and awareness aimed at sparking the imagination.
