Come play with us. Move freely. Compose dance in the moment with live musicians.
In this after work, no stress improv class, fun exercises and loose structures help you cultivate your unique voice as a moving body and artist. Move to live music from your deep impulses with clear and bold choices. As we all build solo material, we will work on moving together, acutely paying attention to one another, the space, what the dance needs to develop, and decide together on an ending in the moment. Our goal is to make meaningful and cohesive dances all while holding space for our solo material and others.
We will begin by practicing 30 second dances working towards 15 minute dances. Class will end with an open “jam.”
Seasoned improvisors welcome.
No prior improv or dance experience necessary.

Feeling the need to explore, question, let loose, dig deeper, and address habits in your dancing? Take class with The Lovelies!! Class, usually lead by one or two of the five Lovelies, guides movers from warming, into working, into noticing, and into composing. The room is open to people of all ages, abilities, shapes, and sizes. The Lovelies’ class is also insight to how they work and rehearse. Try it out! Treat yourself to a bi-monthly practice. You won’t regret it!
This is a fantastic and unique class – love it! I’ve primarily worked professionally as an actor, with some dance training, and I found class really accessible and informative. I definitely wrote down exercises after class to use in future devising processes. The structure of the class makes improvisation accessible, and yet there is still this exciting feeling of risk and bravery because you don’t know exactly what is going to happen during a given exercise. Great for dancers of all styles I think, for people who teach dance/movement classes for adults or kids and would like to learn new exercises, or for devised theater makers.
