      EVENT DETAILS
      Brian Chung Choreographic Workshop

      Brian Carey Chung, new Resident Choreographer of Dance Alive National Ballet, will be conducting a three day workshop for intermediate and advanced dancers age 12 and up. According to Mr. Chung, the thrust of the workshop “is that the dancer is not merely a mover, but a thinking divining collaborator to the choreographer. It will push the dancer to understand that this is very necessary for success in the field.” Dancers may be divided into two groups or more. Mr. Chung will give you tools in which to be a better dancer for the choreographers. You need to bring nothing on the first day. This is a GRAND EXPERIMENT!  Mr. Chung will be drawing from other art forms and if something is created by all of you, yay! If not, that’s OK, too. If you play an instrument, bring the instrument. Bring a notebook and a pen and pencil and a phone with a camera. If you have a second talent, Mr. Chung would like to know the first day! Wear loose clothing. A lunch break will be provided from 12-1. Dancers will need to provide their own lunch or travel to provide lunch.  Mr. Chung is the founder and artistic director of Collective Body Dance Lab, a New York City project-based creative think tank for the production and performance of new dance. He danced with LINES Ballet, Complexions Contemporary Ballet, Ballet Hispanico of NY, and Armitage Gone! Dance where he was principal dancer, rehearsal director and assistant choreographer to Karole Armitage. He has taught on the faculties of LINES Ballet/SF Dance Center, Peridance Capezio Center, Broadway Dance Center, and Joffrey Ballet School where he continues to teach most summers. He was an Assistant Professor of Ballet at Northern Illinois University and has guest lectured and taught masterclasses internationally at NYU TISCH, Stanford University, University of Hawaii, and University of Arizona, among others. Mr. Chung is also working on his first book of poems   Mr. Chung’s first work for DANB, Touch Me Closer, premiered February 2019 with great success. He is planning a new work of choreography for DANB to premier in 2020.    Tuition is $300 and due by June 1st.   Space is limited. For information or registration, DANB at 352-371-2986 or judy@dancealive.org.
