Jazz/Hip Hop Fusion with Kim Kalunian // Tuesdays @ 6-7pm // $13 per class; $60 for 6 classes
This super-fun class mixes jazz technique with modern hip-hop, the things you see in today’s best music videos and on the hottest concert tours. The 1-hour class starts with a series of jazz-based warm ups that will tone and lengthen your muscles from head to toe. Work your arms, core, buns and thighs, while stretching and lengthening to get long, lean dancer muscles. After we’re warm, each week we’ll learn a new combination to a pop or hip-hop song that new, fresh and current. The dances will blend jazz (think kicks, turns and jumps) with hip-hop (think booty shaking and “twerking”) to result in a fun, cardio workout. All levels welcome!

Modern Dance For Every Level with Jamie Arnold and Stephanie Turner // Wednesdays @ 6:30-8pm // $13 per class; $60 for 6 classes
Class begins with a warm-up that incorporates yoga and breathwork with gentle movements of the spine before moving on to phrase material. A series of short phrases will then be explored, where students are encouraged to play and experiment with how his/her individual body prefers to move through the demonstrated movements. The phrases include elements like directional changes, movement through space, spirals, rotation, lines, momentum, energy and floorwork. Movement may carry over from previous classes and blend into the dance material. Each phrase that is developed will lead to a rich and colorful dance toward the end of class. Jamie Arnold is a certified and licensed Kripalu Yoga guide and dancer working out of Warwick RI and graduate of Rhode Island College with a B.A. in Dance Performance, where she was a member of the Rhode Island College Dance Company. Jamie attended the American Dance Festival in Durham, NC and was in residency at The Dragon’s Egg Studio in Ledyard, CT and has performed in Trisha Brown’s Floor of the Forest at the ICA in Boston and Between Movement Contemporary Dance Company.
VIDEO + MUSIC
Katabasis by Cooper Holoweski
Musical accompaniment by Doc Holoweski
Q&A with the artist to follow video + Performance
Wednesday, June 19, 9:30PM
Detroit-born, Brooklyn-based artist Cooper Holoweski’s video work has been praised by Art in America as “inﬁnitely watchable.” His ‘Katabasis‘ is a 40-minute video landscape with live sound accompaniment that moves the viewer though an elaborately constructed virtual junkyard to explore the themes of death, limbo, and rebirth. In various world mythologies “Katabasis” refers to a trip to the underworld. The journey of Odysseus through Hades and the death and resurrection of Lazarus are classic examples of Katabasis. Together with the live performance of an evolving musical score, it creates multi-sensory experiences that exemplify the tense liminal space of ‘Katabasis.’ The score is a collage of improvised instrumentation, ﬁeld recordings, and audio loops that form a densely layered soundscape for each movement.
