Making Every Second Count
(or, What I’ve Learned about Choreography in 5 Minute Increments)
JUNE 14 / 4:30-7PM
Velocity Founders Studio 1621 12th Ave
$25 drop-in / $21 MVP


This workshop will explore tools for delivering our movement ideas, images, and concepts to an audience with the greatest impact in the least time possible. The goal: to create meaningful, complete pieces that can be performed in 5 minutes or less. We will discuss how this dense and action-packed style of performance-making applies to longer work. This workshop is inspired by a career made up of 60 minute and 5 minute choreographies, and what I have learned from the extreme contrast between evening-length and cabaret formats.

LOU HENRY HOOVER, purveyor of “hilarious dance magic,” has been referred to by The Seattle Stranger as “a treasure beyond measure, a genius, a jewel, a muse.” Lou is 1/2 of Kitten N’ Lou (with Kitten LaRue), 1/3 of DeLouRue Presents (with BenDeLaCreme), and recently made his television debut dancing with Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett in their PBS Great Performances Series live concert “Cheek to Cheek.” Lou has had a decade long career in both contemporary dance and cabaret performance including extensive work with Cherdonna Shinatra, and has been passionate about teaching dance for just as long.
