Choreography Workshop

  • Portland Ballet Studio 517 Forest Ave Portland, ME (map)

Do you make up dances in your living room? Maybe it’s time to bring them to life!

Whether you’re an accomplished choreographer or you’ve never done it before, this 8 week workshop (that culminates with showing your work at Vivid Motion’s 5th Annual Studio Show in April) will lead you through all stages of choreographing, from creation to rehearsals and finally production. You will learn choreography concepts and structures, how to map out music, and skills used to find inspiration when you’re suffering from choreographer's block. You will have time to explore movement and ideas with other dancers, helping each other by being part of small groups for choreography. Ideas generated in the workshop can also be put onto larger groups that rehearse independently.

The classes will build on one another, so attendance at all is highly encouraged. Participation in the Studio Show is not mandatory.

Brigitte Paulus has been dancing and making choreography for 30+ years--She’s picked up a lot along the way and wants to share it with you.
