#GALLIMasters with MADBOOTS
Tuesday, October 15th, 10am-12pm
Noted for it's "refreshing, often thrilling, straightforwardness", MADBOOTS DANCE is a queer, contemporary dance company based in New York City. The hyper-physical, provocative company led by Jonathan Campbell and Austin Diaz, was named "25 to Watch" by Dance Magazine and has reached audiences nationally and internationally, mining topics of male identity and queer culture. The company had the honor of performing at The Joyce Theater's first-ever LGBTQ+ Pride Week, as well as performing works at Jacob's Pillow, Fire Island Dance Festival, BAM Fisher Hillman, and Velocity Dance Center, to name a few. Presently, Campbell & Diaz continue to create original works for the company, as well as, teach both emerging and professional dancers around the nation. To learn more, visit: WWW.MADBOOTSDANCE.COM
Class begins gently, creating a grounded awareness of the body with spinal focus and imagery-driven improvisation. After building heat and sensation, dancers will connect their expressive bodies to challenging phrasework from MADBOOTS DANCE repertory and research.
