PERFORMANCES and EVENTS

Due to government restrictions and recent closures, all 2020 performances of The Ruby Slippers: A Wizard of Oz Ballet are CANCELLED.

The performances have been rescheduled for May 2021.

TCB is committed to paying our dancers through the rest of the 2019-2020 season, to ensure their security through these tumultuous circumstances. With these cancellations, not only will our dancers miss the opportunity to perform, but TCB will suffer a significant financial loss. As a non-profit, we rely heavily on ticket sales and donations to continue operations. We hope that patrons and donors who are fortunate to have stable financial means will continue to support the arts.

Tickets that have already been purchased are eligible to be used for the 2021 production, or for a refund. However, we ask that you consider donating the cost of your ticket to TCB in lieu of a refund to help us through this difficult time.

We are looking forward to bringing you this wonderful ballet next season!

WORKSHOPS, INTENSIVES, MASTER CLASSES and OPEN HOUSES

In compliance with CDC guidelines regarding coronavirus prevention, we are moving our Doushin Butoh Experience Workshop to Zoom. It is now split into two Thursdays, April 9 and 16 from 6:30-8:00pm CST US.

Butoh is a contemporary Japanese performance art form that began in the late 1950's. Originally started as an anti-establishment, anti-traditional dance theater, butoh explores the relationship between our mind and body, and it questions society's perceptions of the body and ideas of "beauty." Though it is considered an underground art form, butoh is practiced all over the world.

This workshop is for people who want to experience Doushin Butoh. The essence of Doushin Butoh is “Resonance,” beyond idea or concept. It can only be felt and experienced.

Join and experience the power of Resonance!

Thursday, April 9 and 16: 6:30pm-8:00pm
Date is subject to change.

This four-week virtual session is designed for children ages two through four and their parent/caregiver who are interested in a shared movement experience that engages the senses of curiosity and play.

Both child and caregiver will participate in developmentally-appropriate movement exercises that incorporate elements such as effort, shape, and tempo. Music will play an essential role in the class as students will be asked to respond to sounds as well as make sounds themselves. Participants will be encouraged to join at their own comfort level with the understanding that observation is often the best form of learning with younger children. This class will give children and caregivers the opportunity to learn more about themselves and one another through the art form of dance.

Saturdays, 9:00-9:45am

Session 2A: April 18-May 9, four weeks
Session 2B: May 16-June 6, four weeks

Cost: $60 per session

Using experiential explorations, improvisation, observation, and class discussion this second-level class will deepen the student’s understanding of and facility with LMA observation, improvisation, and application skills. We will study in relationship to cross cultural/diversity issues. Specific attention will be paid to uses of LMA in relationship to dance/movement.

Laban Movement Analysis (LMA) is a system that examines the subtle meanings within all patterns of movement and physical actions. The study of LMA increases awareness of individual movement styles; develops sensitivity to cultural non-verbal patterns, and promotes a deeper understanding of the communicative and expressive nature of all forms of movement and dance. The course is pre-approved by the American Dance Therapy Association for Alternate route R-DMT.

Instructor: Barbara Nordstrom-Loeb MA, MFA, BC-DMT, LMFT, CMA, SEP; WoS

Class will be conducted online, contact instructor for details.

This class will use discussion and experiential exercises to introduce the field of Dance/Movement Therapy (DMT).

Whether you are an interested student, psychotherapist, health care practitioner, or other healing professional, join us to learn about a psychotherapy that uses movement, dance, creativity, and body awareness to promote change, growth, and wellness. A non-verbal multicultural perspective will be emphasized throughout the course.
“If you can walk, you can dance.” —Zimbabwe proverb

Dance/Movement Therapy (DMT) is a systemic body-mind approach integrating movement and embodied awareness with verbal expressions to facilitate psychological goals. Movement and body patterns provide a basis for clinical assessment and guide psychotherapeutic interventions. DMT is rooted in ancient wisdom and became a field in the 1960’s in the US. It is currently recognized and practiced throughout the world.

Class will be online or in the Loring Park neighborhood of Minneapolis. Contact instructor for details.
