Open Dance Rehearsals:  March 27 and 28, 2012; 4-6pm. 
Reception and All Scholars Showcase. March 29, 6-8pm
Join us for an evening packed with activity! Guests will see a performance of Portraiture and Perception, as well as the completed transformation of the Upper Gallery by MFA actors participating in Stage/Studio: Space Transformed, and the All Scholars Showcase which highlights the creativity found throughout the OSU Scholars program.

Learn about dance and the creative process in an informal and interactive environment. This performance exhibit, curated by MFA students Fiona Lundie and Rashana Smith, utilizes dance, movement, and the body as a way to further understand our interaction with and interpretation of our world as well as the ways we conceive and retain this sensory, experiential knowledge. Performers and viewers move through the gallery space in order to process the rich perceptual information. Therefore, it is the overarching interest of the artists to offer viewers an active, engaging, aesthetic environment to inspire greater awareness of their relationships to and agency within their everyday experiences, especially with respect to time, space, and human dynamics. All performances and open rehearsals are free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided at each performance. For info and performance times, visit the event page.

Kidd Pivot Frankfurt RM dance ensemble members are teaching a master class on Wednesday, March 28 from 10:30-12 in Pomerene 213. A sign-up sheet will be placed on the board in Pomerene 316 on Monday, March 26. There will be eighteen slots available for current dance majors, 2 for the community.

Kidd Pivot's improvisation class focuses on discovering and revealing articulations and timings in the body. The class begins with a warm-up as participants articulate deeply through the body in stages, starting from the spine and working towards the extremities. Participants work at their own pace, exploring kinetic relationships both within their own bodies and to the space around them. The class is explorative and non-performative: its focus is on the play between analysis and instinct, and the use of improvisation both as a tool and an experience.
