O.C.T.

Curated by Breeanne Saxton, O.C.T. hosts local and visiting dance/ movement practitioners to teach master classes as well as sustained community classes. 

 

These classes are designed for intermediate to professional dancers intending to deepen and expand their technical, improvisation, and performance practices in addition to serving as a meeting ground for Salt Lake City and Utah dancers to connect, grow, and inspire one another. 

 

Stay tuned for a wider range of class offerings including beginning adult modern, Butoh, Acting for Dancers, and more classes coming soon! 

 

While we work to find a permanent home, classes are held at various locations throughout the Salt Lake valley including Rowland Hall, Capitol Theatre, the Clubhouse and more. Click on individual classes to see locations.

In this contemporary technique class we will explore expression and play within the structure of movement sequences. Using ideas of opposition, tension, and release, dynamic weight shifting, and an emphasis on anatomical alignment, we will find the suppleness and availability in our bodies from which movement springs with Ease. The movements will range from simple exploration of the body's pathways to physically challenging phrase work. Through imagery, sensation, musicality, and clarity of focus, we will physically and intellectually engage with our bodies, our fellow dancers, and the space around us.
