Shannon Stewart Contemporary Choreography Dance Class
12:00pm - 2:00pm

Let's learn a dance - monthly choreography class returns! 

After a brief warm up mixing improvisation and alignment exercises, we'll spend the rest of our time learning and playing with set material. 

This class calls on release technique as well as other contemporary forms to let weight, momentum and extension carry us through space with clarity and courage to take up a lot of space. The class will cater to the int/adv mover but all levels with a desire to learn, retain and practice material welcome! Learning material can be a bit scary or intimidating, especially in a style that might be unfamiliar. The aim is to make this practice fun and supportive, and this class will give advanced movers a challenge but also offer some level modifications.

Breathwork with Wellspring New Orleans
4:00pm - 5:30pm

Join Kathleen Currie of Wellspring New Orleans for a breathwork class - a form of active meditation with roots in ancient Indian pranayama (the study of the breath). As the breather breathes using a 2 stage breath with the guidance of a teacher, the hypothalmus gland releases endorphins which can feel like a flood of energy, emotion, visions, and memories. By releasing these stuck energies, the nervous system is able to release and activate a self-healing process that has a ripple effect on the entire system! These sessions are active, and end with a deep rest with some hands on touch to facilitate release. You will feel lighter, more free, and deeply relaxed after. This modality is safe for anyone, and highly transformative.

Versipel presents andPlay
7:00pm - 9:30pm

Versipel New Music will present New York City-based violin and viola duo. Described by I Care If You Listen as “enthusiastic champions for new music and collaboration” and performing “with a welcoming and dynamic spirit,” andPlay is committed to expanding the existing violin/viola duo repertoire through performing rarely heard works and commissioning emerging composers. The “genre-busting” (Midwest Records) New York City-based duo of Maya Bennardo, violin, and Hannah Levinson, viola, first played to an eager crowd on Fire Island in the summer of 2012 and has since commissioned over thirty works. andPlay’s performances have been described as “sheer virtuosity” (Cinemusical), “otherworldly” (New York Music Daily) and “an awful lot of fun for people who gravitate towards stark, edgy harmonies and textures” (Lucid Culture).
