When gut, heart, and brain are trusted, a dialogue forms between conscious and intuitive physicality. The tension between abstraction and narrative – form and content – adds context to this dialogue. Class physically and mentally prepares dancers and/or actors to contribute to this conversation whether they produce their own work or interpret the work of others. Warm-up begins with meditative form and graduates to rigorous alignment. Blood pumping continues with improvisation techniques and games; both known and unknown. Class finishes with phrase work and related improvisations. Come as you are! Let’s go places together.

TROY OGILVIE has danced for and collaborated with choreographers – Andrea Miller, Sidra Bell, Zoe Scofield, Gabriel Forestieri, Idan Sharabi, Itzik Galili, Shannon Gillen, Margie Gillis (as a participant in the The Legacy Project/Le Projet Heritage), Austin McCormick, Harumi Terayama, Malcolm Low, Patricia Noworol, and Belinda McGuire; violinist – Liv Heym; theater company – Punchdrunk (in the role of Lady Macbeth); and director – Peter Sellars (in the role of Mary Magdalene in The Gospel According to the Other Mary). She teaches an improvisation class and is one of the creative directors for The McKittrick Hotel’s (home of Sleep No More) SUPERCINEMA parties. Additionally, Troy is the Secretary of Springboard Danse Montreal’s Canadian Board as well as a Founding Collaborator & Associate Director of NYC’s Movement Invention Project. She was one of Dance Magazine’s 2011 Top 25 to Watch and graduated with a B.F.A. from the Juilliard School in 2007.
