Calgary based dance artist Jason Owin F. Galeos will be teaching GW Company Classes

May 14 – 17, 2019 from 10:00am-11:30am
in the Muriel Taylor Studio at the Ruth Carse Centre for Dance (11205 107 Avenue).

The class will turn around one or two themes per day including warm up, floorwork in the space. From smearing extremities to syncing forms, where energy and the imaginary are the rulers of the rhythm. The participants are encouraged to get in and out of the floor in the shortest delay of time. Each day will be something different so expect a variation of warm ups, release, tools, vocabulary, and repertoire.
