The new season of ANAR DANA Seattle is about to begin!!! The introductory weekend for the ANAR DANA Seattle 2021/22 Training Project is October 2-3, 2021. This will be our 12th season in Seattle!!! We are looking forward to welcoming ANAR DANA dancers back into the community...and invite completely new people to join us. You don't have to live in Seattle to join the project. In the past the Seattle chapter has had members from Oregon, California, Texas and Canada and we will be glad to welcome you and host you if you come from afar. Please register to secure your spot ASAP.
Cost: $200 per weekend with 10 participants.
We are happy to return to Shay Moore's wonderful Studio Deep Roots Dance in Greenwood!!!
The project itself is a series of 10 intensive weekends of 14 hours each (Including an hour break for a potluck lunch) 11am-6pm Sat & Sun.
We learn the techniques of each of the dance styles decided upon, do dance training and yoga, learn about the cultural and historical backgrounds for the different dance styles, learn about choreography, staging, stage make-up and costumes. We learn 7 different group choreographies...although each student will not perform all 7 dances it is expected that she learn them all. Most of the costuming comes from the ANAR DANA collections. At the end of the project we do a recital...I do solos in between the group choreographies so that we have a smooth running, full evening performance. There is a certificate of participation for all who complete the program.
