Keep an eye out for who’s coming to the Dance Commons!Finely Crafted, Fiercely Realized DancingInt/Adv Technique with Randee PaufveJune 4 - 13, 2012Mondays & Wednesdays, 10am - 11:45amRandee's class emphasizes rigorous, wide-awake, 100% organic, less-is-more dancing. Built from a complex, detailed combination developed through shorter sequences, we work with easeful, swooping, plunging movement that rides the lines between technique and release, rawness and refinement, with no distinction between warm up and dance. Supported by fun, considered music, dancers are encouraged to experiment with range, scope, and intrinsic phrasing to nurture a holistic sense of their bodies in motion, to cultivate a 360-degree awareness of space and to employ technique as a tool to support artistic expression.Randee Paufve is the director of the Oakland-based Paufve Dance. Nominated for numerous Izzies over the years, Randee’s work has been supported by choreography residencies at the Djerassi Resident Artist Program, Ucross, the Red Cinder Creativity Center and Shawl-Anderson Dance Center.
