Peggy Baker brings the richness, depth, and immediacy of her physical practice into play in a class driven by dynamism and musicality, and focused on the expressive and kinetic potential of our bodies. The work unfolds fluidly, and with refreshing shifts of focus, through a wide range of vivid and invigorating movement explorations that address essential issues of impulse and action. Fundamental to her material and methods are the influence of neuro-muscular specialist Irene Dowd, teacher Christine Wright, and choreographers James Kudelka, Molissa Fenley, Paul-Andre Fortier, Lar Lubovitch, Mark Morris, Tere O’Connor, and Doug Varone. Ms Baker is artist-in-residence at Canada’s National Ballet School and artistic director of Peggy Baker Dance Projects, established in 1990.

I am a salsa and tango dancer, having dabbled a bit in jazz, ballet and samba as well, and I use dancing as part of my theatrical work, where I blend music and dance to acting (e.g. http://activeislands.com/calendar-event/moon-and-other-side-honeymoon-show-music-comedy-and-magic-0)

I have never taken dance professionally however. Would this course be good for me? Thanks- Veronica

Hi Veronica. Thanks for your question. We are suggesting that the level for participants be pre-professional/professional.
