workshops - Beyond Rhythm
Beyond Rhythm workshops   Alan Danielson teaches advanced workshops in music/dance for dancers, teachers, choreographers and musicians. Beyond Rhythm workshops are studio courses that explore phrasing in movement and music. They explore the ways that physical training, performance and theatricality are affected by phrasing and rhythm. Participants vary the timing of exercises and movement phrases, discovering how this alters the use of muscles, space and intent. Beyond Rhythm promotes an articulation of time, which expands the possibilities for movement, choreography and performance.
