Alison Chase is a master teacher whose first class inspired the creation of the internationally-renowned dance company Pilobolus. Today she continues to work with students of all backgrounds, from pre-professional youth to adults without dance training. Her approach emphasizes physical-based creativity over sheer steps and technique, encouraging play, invention, and the development of new movement vocabularies.
Using movement based improvisation Alison Chase/Performance explores collaboration and invention and the interplay of impulse and intuition in the creative process. This is accomplished in a casual and playful environment with great music. No previous experience is necessary.
