Apr 20 @ 9:00 pm – Apr 21 @ 1:00 am

RAWsome‘s rock duo took off in Vermont in a hazey cupola with a view of Mount Mansfield, the Winooski River, and the ever increasing puns of life that most folks look over. They took it in and pumped out genre piercing views on life from the most raw viewpoint possible. Now relocated in southern New England, you can watch ‘em strip it down and build you up. Acuminous guitar player + polka dot lyricist + drummer of the day. Show up limber and leave with a stiffy.

Night Slice is vocalist/keybordist, Bridie Johnson, and Tom Wolejko on the bass and drum machine. Original pop/rock/punk with a retro/electric edge. Fun poppy songs about mythical creatures, science, space, nature, fierce woman and love

Nuda Veritas is an avant-garde solo looping artist. Since 2006, her eclectic songwriting has explored the juxtaposition of tension and release through unique formulaic looping utilizing lush layers of classically-trained vocals, produced beats, fragmented spoke word tapes, sampling, and digital video collages.

Upcoming Class Info and Teacher Bios:

April 26 : Modern Dance with Ali Kenner Brodsky
This modern class begins with a floor warm-up based on the Laban and Release Technique principles. We then move to standing on our feet and hands which leads us to a final combination. Emphasis will be placed on proper body mechanics, musicality, use of breath to initiate movement and spatial awareness. I ask you to come with an open mind and to explore movement in new ways.  I urge you to seek your individuality as a mover and thinker.

May 10: Modern Dance with Rachel Boggia
Info coming soon!

May 24: Modern Dance with Kristen Bell
This technique class investigates how anatomy and movement mechanics interface with the qualitative aspects of dance performance.  Class begins with a series of simple movement exercises to establish efficient movement patterns, which will underpin alignment and mobility as class progresses to larger, more complex combinations. Class culminates with lively phrase work–ranging from traveling combinations to floor work to jumps – that we will use as the basis for exploring musicality and creativity. I aim to create a positive environment where dancers feel at home challenging themselves as artists, all while getting sweaty and having a great time!
