Movement Choir with Frederick Curry
Movement Choir is a process of self-expression and community-building through dance-making. The concept, based on singing choirs, was developed by dance theorist Rudolf Laban (1879-1958). The Movement Choir welcomes all movers and reflects Laban’s belief that Dance is a community act–in the preparation, in the organization, and above all, in the shared experience. The Choir process will focus on Laban’s Shape and Relationship concepts and will culminate in a shared informance.
