Immersing the audience in a 360-degree art and dance installation, AfterWind is simultaneously a sensitive meditation on the universal experience of facing our mortality and an examination of the personal, public, and political anxiety that arises from large-scale violence.

I am teaching Advanced/Professional Ballet this Thursday, July 21 from 9:30-11:00am at Cowles 2B and the following week July 29 at Saint Paul Ballet (Grand Avenue Studio) 10-11:30am.

The class work is inspired by my training with noted teachers David Howard, Bonnie Mathis, Marjorie Mussman, and Lirena Branitski. The base is ballet with an emphasis on musicality, core strength (we do a brief Pilates break between Barre and Center) and practical applications to choreography and reality. My studies and performances in contact and improvisation, classical/contemporary ballet, and other idioms (tap, aerial, Gaga, poetry) find their way into the class.

ONGOING CLASSES

Kjara Starič Wurst is a Slovene choreographer, currently based in Milan, Italy. Ms. Wurst danced with Slovenski Plesni Projekt Contemporary Dance Company. In 2010, she founded Kjara’s Dance Project (KDP) to give young dancers the opportunity for more stage experience.

As a choreographer and teacher, Kjara combines technically stylized classical ballet, the broken lines of contemporary ballet, and the softness and fluidity of contemporary dance. Emphasizing interpretation and precise movement, playing with different dynamics and rhythm, Kjara's choreographies are very physical, filled with the suggestiveness of everyday movement and vulnerability, and emphasizing humanity and narration within the dancers. "I love working with dancers in the moment. Through exploring the movement and expressiveness that can come only through allowed vulnerability and stepping out of the comfort zone, we become connected on a human level forever."

Classes designed for students who wish to begin or continue dance training for health, recreation or self-enrichment. Students are encouraged to grow as an individual artist and to participate at their own pace. Classes are taught by teachers dedicated to the growth and fostering of ballet as an art form and believe dance contributes to a healthy lifestyle. Classes emphasize overall body conditioning and encourage an aesthetic appreciation of dance. All classes are accompanied by professional musicians who collaborate with our teachers just as in our pre-professional program and for our professional dancers.
Our drop-in program allows students a flexible schedule that meets the needs of both the working professional and busy student.
