Free Flow Dance Open Rehearsal and Performance
Date and time
Free Flow Dance Centre
Free, and accepts optional pay-what-you-may donations for admission.
Offered in English.
Has gender-neutral washrooms.
Friday, September 27th at 6:30 pm the Free Flow Dance Theatre Company will present an open rehearsal at the Free Flow Dance Centre followed by an in-studio showing of some of our company repertoire. The audience will be invited to view and participate in some of the work that is done behind the scenes as the dancers warm up and review choreographic materials. This open rehearsal will provide the participants with some personal insight into what exactly goes on behind the scenes when creating a professional dance production and strengthen their relationship to the movement arts.
Attendees will be invited to join the dance company members in the studio for a short 10-minute warm-up which will consist of a couple of basic dance warm-up exercises such as knee bends with side stretches and brushes and points for warming up the feet. Then they will also get the chance to learn a few of the signature moves from our choreographic movement vocabulary for the piece that we will be presenting. It is always wonderful for our audience members to get a chance to try some of the actual movement they will see on stage as it affords them a new perspective on dance and the mastery behind its artistry.
After the participatory experience, everyone will then be treated to a 15-30 minute performance by the professional dance company followed by a short question and answer period.
