Contempo Physical Dance is offering free advanced-level Brazilian contemporary dance classes for pre-professional and professional level dancers this summer. Taught by Marciano Silva dos Santos, the classes will feature live percussive music and be influenced by Marciano’s background in Afro-Brazilian and contemporary dance styles.
Dancers can enjoy the entire series of classes or drop in for a single class. After the series of summer classes, an audition will be held for Contempo’s upcoming fall project and these classes are intended to prepare dancers’ physicality for the audition. However, all professional dancers are welcome regardless of their intention to audition.
Tuesdays and Thursdays, August 18 and 23
This activity is made possible by a grant provided by the Minnesota State Arts Board through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
