EDAM is pleased to announce the return visit of master teacher/improviser/performer Andrew Harwood. While Andrew is with us he will teach two workshops:

EMPTYING, LANDING, SOARING
(A solid grasp of CI is highly recommended)
Mon-Fri April 9-13, 9:30-12:30  Cost: $200
Releasing, tuning and toning enliven our entire being, creating a state of readiness which leads us to fuller, vibrant dancing. We will give special attention to the relationship of the head/tail connection and strengthen the link of our centre to the extremities of the body so that our take-offs, landings and traveling through space are all brave, smooth and safe.


SEIZE THE DECISIVE MOMENT
A real time composition/performance workshop
 (Experience with improv performance is  an advantage)
Sat-Sun April 14-15, noon-6  Cost $150
Training ourselves to ‘let it happen’ is ironically quite difficult. This workshop will focus on playing lightly/seriously with our 'how to', our 'know-how' and our 'not knowing’. As a performance art form, the challenge in real time composition is about finding a way to dance without pretense. The ability to seize the decisive moment and respond freely/unselfconsciously becomes the goal.

To register send a non-refundable $50 deposit to EDAM Dance, 303 E. 8th Ave., Vancouver, V5T 1S1. Please indicate which workshop you wish to attend. All payments cash/cheque only (no cards).
