Going to be around in July? Have an interest in acquiring more fierceness, style, strength and experience? Of course you do. Luckily, master teachers from The Seldoms will be sharing their secrets at a summer intensive, July 20-31 in the gargantuan, flooded-with-natural-light studio atop 1945 South Halsted in Pilsen (take the 8 to Cullerton, the Red Line to the 21, your car or your bike). For intermediate and advanced dancers, classes for the 10-day session will include warm-up, stretch & conditioning; technical exercises with an emphasis on sound anatomical practices; ample exploration time; and development of extended phrase material. Accompaniment will be live music—a huge plus—and the classes are available three ways: a la carte for $15, 5 for $70, or all 10 for $130. Get your act together and register by June 1 and you save another five bucks. Teachers are Seldoms Artistic Director Carrie Hanson, Paige Cunningham and Christina Gonzales-Gillett. Just call (312) 328-0303 or email mail (at) theseldoms (dot) org.
An extra bonus for all your hard work can be a slice of cool, sopping tres leches from Kristoffer’s right up the street. Get down there and get great!
