Online Classes: Creating Virtual Space

These classes and tutorials are content produced by independent artists and groups—BAX community members—sharing their skills and time with others amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing.

For a list of organizations, centers, and other independent artists offering online classes please visit NYC Dance Week’s listing at www.nycdanceweek.org/online-classes/

If you are able, please donate to these artists and groups for the work they are making and sharing. Many artists, performers, educators, cultural workers, community organizations, and arts education centers are losing resources and funding. In this time of emergent forms and connections, please help us sustain each other and our communities.

Hollis Barlett and Nattie Trogdon

Hollis Barlett and Nattie Trogdon offer DONATION BASED weekly movement/dance class – questioning “what does practice look like in this time?”

CLASS: Practice + Preparedness
CLASS is heavily sensation based – there will be body conditioning, expulsive exercises, improvisation scores, discourse and discussion, maybe phrase-work, maybe at-home research, maybe prompts, maybe readings, maybe processing, crying, sharing of feelings.
CLASS will be ever-evolving as we are ever-evolving.
CLASS is most importantly about building and holding space for each other – to check in on each other and attend to our deeply empathetic and resilient bodies so we can continue to practice and prepare.

On Zoom: https://us04web.zoom.us/j/405996533
Weekly on Saturdays (starting 4/4) at Noon EST (1.5 hours)

SLIDING SCALE DONATION BASED:
$10 if you have not lost income and can afford class
$5 if you are feeling financial loss and want to take affordable class
$0 if you have lost the majority/all of your income and can not afford class
NO ONE WILL BE TURNED AWAY DUE TO LACK OF FUNDS!
