ALLAN WAYNE WORK
The late American dancer, Allan Wayne (1907-1978), created an early fusion of ballet, yoga, and emotional work. Adding principles from other dance researches, Paul Langland has developed these teachings which he has named "Allan Wayne Work" in choreography, workshops and as a faculty member at New York University's dynamic Experimental Theater Wing.
The workshops will be an opportunity to experience the physical principles of Allan Wayne Work. These include: finding muscular support closer to the skeleton, resulting in more efficient use of energy and fuller range of movement, and exploring individual and group improvisation incorporating new discoveries. This work has been studied by a wide range of dancers, actors, athletes, singers, and in rehabilitation. Allan Wayne Work is also the focus of a recent article in the Contact Quarterly, (Spring 1998). All levels and experiences, from beginners to professionals, invited to attend.
