Salsa Grande Dance Workshop

Salsa Grande with Michael Whitmire

Thursday, June 14 | 7:00 PM-9:00 PM
Salsa Grande is designed for people who have little or no Salsa dancing experience, but are enthusiastic about learning something new and/or refining what you may already know. You will be taught dance steps that can be used in any social setting where Salsa music is played.

The instructor will emphasize understanding the music and being able to coordinate your body movement with the music, which are the hallmarks of any good dancer. Stay for 30 minutes after the class to practice the steps and socialize with friends.

$10 pre-registered online | $15 at the door

Michael Whitmire is the founder, choreographer, and director of the SALSA GRANDE dance program, based in Houston.  He is known as "the Dancing Lawyer" among the local Salsa-dancing community, because his day job is indeed as a licensed attorney and adjunct law professor -- yet for the past 11 years, Michael has spent much of his spare time teaching people in the Houston area how to dance to Salsa music.  He has performed over 80 times in Texas, including onstage at the Wortham Center, Discovery Green, the International Festival, and several appearances on Houston's network television affiliates.  Michael has also performed twice in California and won a dance contest in Miami, Florida.  Michael's greatest joy is teaching Salsa dancing to others, so that they can experience the same fun he has had since learning his first steps almost 25 years ago.

Gaga/People Dance Workshop

Gaga/people with Amy Diane Morrow

Tuesday, June 5 | 7:00 PM-8:00 PM
Gaga is a moment language which Ohad Naharin developed over the course of many years and which is applied to daily practice and exercises by the Batsheva Dance Company members. Gaga/people classes last one hour and are open to people ages 16+, regardless of their background in dance or movement. No previous dance experience is needed. Rather than copying a particular movement, each participant in the class actively explores these instructions, discovering how he or she can interpret the information and perform the task at hand.

Screen Dance

A weekend-long intensive video dance workshop exploring site-responsive experimentation through the interdisciplinary process of mixing body movement and film together in Houston.

Led by the Las Girls Collective, Daniela Antelo and Brenda Cruz-Wolf, the participants will collaborate to create work in an immersive environment in various Houston locations as the urban landscape for movement and filmmaking. This workshop will be open to all community members- ranging from filmmakers, choreographers, dancers, visual artists or anyone interested in the art of collaboration.

The workshop will include:

     Introduction of screen dance, watching and examining contemporary films and talking through what makes screen dance successful.
     Exploring and encouraging a dialogue about what motivates and inspires us as makers, artists and creatives.
     Encourage participants to talk about their lives, creative experiences and practices as a tool to fuel art-making.
     Discuss different approaches to structuring a work.
     Engaging in a free-flow of ideas and what ‘feels right’ in movement, choreography and filmmaking.

The emphasis of this workshop will be to create a visual story on film, based on the experiences and responses of site-specific performances.  The versatility of video allows to reach a vast range of audiences, putting Houston and Houston artists at high exposure. Our goal as a collaborative is to introduce screen-dance as another facet of interdisciplinary arts within Houston. We want to share our passion and bring forth new ideas about collaborative art making.

BABYLON: We the People

BABYLON: We the People deals with socio-political issues that affect society today, and it is essentially these issues being addressed from the youth's point of view; as to why things like the student walkout (which occurs the day after our show) will be addressed and directly tie into the walkout itself.  A big canvas banner made for the walkout will be on display for the rest of the show. This is the first art show of its kind to be this politically charged, especially with all the students involved. This is in collaboration with two other artists in terms of visual art, and 7 other in terms of performance (including poetry, dance pieces, and sound pieces. The performance aspect of it will last for roughly 20 minutes after the doors open at 3:45.
