WINTER WONDER WORKSHOP 2019
szalt’s classes, workshops, and intensives engage hundreds of participants annually, and encourage the mingling of professionals, pre-professionals, beginners, and everyone in between. Through rigorous physical and mental improvisations, conversations, meditations, and choreography we engage movers' curiosity and creativity. This deep, mindful, and communal research grows with each year as we work towards facilitating a more inclusive and healing dance culture.
Friday January 11 5-10pm // Saturday January 12 + Sound Bath 5-10pm // Sunday January 13 + Showing (optional) 1-7pm
Now in its 3rd year - WINTER WONDER WORKSHOP is an opportunity for participants to explore their bodies, brains, habits, and dreams in a shared space, in darkness, in restoration, in rigor, in choreographic form, in meditation, in winter. Evenings consist of Company Classes led by Stephanie Zaletel, Jordan Saenz, and Lindsey Lollie, with assistance from company members. Each day we will collectively learn and build new material and compositions discovered through group improvisation resulting in something new and rooted in our research.
Our movement is geared towards professional and pre-professional dancers, however we encourage folks with little to no training to attend if they have the desire. All are welcome and will find challenges to enjoy and grow beyond.
Early Bird Rate - $250 (on or before Dec. 1) // Full Rate - $275

“This workshop was immensely refreshing for its emphasis on research rather than performance. Thank you for curating a diverse environment with plenty of room for all voices. I left feeling eager to create new work with a pointed perspective and wide eyes.”
“This past week I have shifted into a new sense of self-and this workshop was the catalyst. I was brought to tears many times throughout the workshop from this overwhelming sense of collective consciousness and felt a true ensemble--something I have searched a very long time for.”
“As a young dancer I was never taught to trust my body in space, only what I saw in the mirror during class. Getting to dance without the judgement and preoccupation of what I looked like helped me be present with what it felt like. Many thanks to each of you for doing your work and making this space for us all.”
