Professional Workshops & Classes

All Season

As part of our commitment to supporting the professional development of artists in the community, TDT hosts special intensives in addition to our staple open classes where advanced or professional dance artists can train alongside TDT’s ensemble and together discover various dance practices and forms. There will be a mix of in-person and online class opportunities throughout the season. All or most classes are pay-what-you-can-afford, no one turned away due to limited funds.

For in-person classes and workshops, participants are required to present their second-dose vaccine receipt at the entrance when they arrive for each session. Masks will still be required to be worn when you are inside the building. Review TDT’s full COVID-19 Vaccination Policy here.

REGISTRATION

COMING SOON

Two dancers are moving on the floor of a studio, and you can see their reflections shimmer across the floor. The dancer on the left is further back and has lifted herself into a backwards bridge, holding herself up with one arm and the other arm partially covering her face. The other dancer is closer to the camera, sitting on his shins while putting his hands on the ground in front of him and looking down.

Yoga with Angelica Rao

These yoga classes will combine the strengthening qualities of an active vinyasa flow practice with the healing, restorative qualities of yoga nidra.

Angelica Rao is a local yoga teacher. You can find out more about her at www.angelicarao.com

These yoga classes will combine the strengthening qualities of an active vinyasa flow practice with the healing, restorative qualities of yoga nidra. For the first hour of practice we build inner heat and strength and create space for energy to flow and for the final 30min of the class, you will be guided into a deep savasana meditation in which you explore staying conscious while the brain waves slip into a sleepy state. This class will leave you feeling rejuvenated, grounded & open for all the dancing you will be doing over the week. Whether you’ve practiced many times before or if this is your first class, all are welcome.

Pleasure Sourcing with Vanessa Kimmons

A gentle movement practice that invites us to be present in the moment; that encourages us to take in the constant shifts of sensation experienced in the body; and that chases the impossible task of being in a state of utmost pleasure at all times.

A gentle movement practice that invites us to be present in the moment; that encourages us to take in the constant shifts of sensation experienced in the body; and that chases the impossible task of being in a state of utmost pleasure at all times. The practice lives in this space where we seek to be present in our bodies while pursuing an intellectual proposal. The practice requires partnership between your thinking/critical mind, and your embodied knowledge. Through simple directions, we engage in an undemanding movement (on or off camera), take a moment to reflect (so please bring journals and writing materials) and then return as a group to reflect and share our thoughts and experiences. Simply tuning into our relationship with pleasure, brings us to a new place, both individually and collectively.
