Students and teachers should seriously take a look at an exciting new initiative that's being organized jointly by Evergreen State College and Southwest Washington Dance Center (aka, Chehalis Ballet Center):

NW Dance Intensive

I'll admit I'm biased as I've been invited to be on its faculty -- and I'm giving the audition classes for the audition tour -- yet it promises to offer a lot for students and their will be a workshop for teachers as well that features an expert on bio-mechanics and how this relates to the teaching of ballet technique.

Being the last week of June and first full week of July, it's purposely timed so that students can feel that they can take both the Summer courses they would normally and also so it won't conflict with end of the year studio programs.

In addition to Ms. Kirkland, we are thrilled that Stephanie Saland has agreed to be one of the other principal guest teachers. The roster of faculty is very impressive and varied.

While auditions are throughout Washington and Oregon, we hope that those elsewhere will consider applying and come to enjoy some of the best of Washington -- the Intensive is located at Evergreen State College in Olympia, just 65 miles south of Seattle, and is situation right on beautiful Puget Sound.

The ultimate endeavor of this reality TV documentary series is to prepare a unique group of professional dancers to work in one of the most cutting-edge ballet companies in the world, the American Cinematic Ballet (ACB). This new company will advance the art of ballet through the medium of film, by creating synergistic new feature ballet films consisting of neo-classic choreography, live-action film and animation.

The series begins with a 16 week training intensive where American ballet students will begin their transformation into world-class artists with the Virtuosity, Artistry and Stunning Physical Aesthetic of professional Russian ballet dancers. The participants who successfully complete the intensive will move on to the next stage of the program as apprentices in the ACB company. Those who achieve a professional level of technique and artistry, will receive payment and a starring role in one of ACB's films.

In addition, all participants will receive their own personal highlight reel, photos, a web presence and of course the finest coaching and choreography available anywhere in the world.

We will be considering dancers ages 18-22+ who have the potential and determination to achieve a professional career in ballet. Must be willing to commit to a 16 week, full-time intensive training program, a full rehearsal schedule and be available to accommodate a dynamic filming schedule. We will be holding auditions every 12 weeks for subsequent episodes.

Submit the following to:

Links to your video and photo sites (youtube, google, facebook etc) or send photos/ video files via email.

There will be an in person audition consisting of a ballet class and a brief interview.

New York, NY -- CAVE is pleased to announce the continuation of its 2010 training program and performance season. LUDUS (school + play) is the educational program of CAVE and its resident company LEIMAY. The core of the program is the New York Butoh Kan (NYBK) Teaching Residency + Training Initiative. Every year, influential butoh artists living abroad are invited to lead workshops as resident teachers at CAVE. This year's residents are Mari Osanai, Yukio Waguri, Imre Thormann and Yukio Suzuki. All residents will lead both introductory and intensive sessions, open to dancers, actors and performers. NYBK-related activities include LEIMAY Open Training, lead by Ximena Garnica, and lectures by and interviews with our resident teachers. Resident teachers will also be performing as a part of CAVE's At Home: Performance Series. This series showcases established butoh artists, those widely recognized figures in the contemporary dissemination of butoh styles and techniques. At Home is also organized in order to support the work of CAVE residents and local artists and as supplement to CAVE's educational activities.

All activities will take place at CAVE in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Cost: $240
Noguchi Taizo (Noguchi Gymnastics)
Noguchi Taizo was created in Japan by Michizo Noguchi (1914-1998) during the same period as butoh was being developed by Tatsumi Hijikata and Kazuo Ohno. The aim is to develop the uniqueness of each individual movement and to relieve any undue strain. Taizo means 'gym' in Japanese, but not in the conventional sense. As Osanai explains, "This technique has nothing to do with… the swelling of the muscles nor resistance forces. The body learns to move in a certain way but is loose and fluid. It becomes soft and flexible as it moves from the weight, which is not fighting anymore but used to be moved."

Mari Osanai Intensive Session
Dates: 16 – 26 August (day off: 24 August)
Times: 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Cost: $580
Noguchi Taiso for Dancers
In this session, Mari Osanai will share with the students the ways in which she applies Noguchi Taiso to dancing and training. Mind and body awareness of the weight of each body part, of the natural elements and its infinitive presence in the body will be explored in this session in which each body part is viewed and approached as a unique laboratory.

Yukio Waguri Introductory Session
Dates: 10 – 12 September
Times: Friday 6 – 10 p.m. / Saturday & Sunday 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Cost: $240
Words & Movement. The Two Elements That Bring into Existence Butoh.
Participants will seek the butoh way of body according to Tatsumi Hijikata’s method. Thinking of the body as a medium and as a transfiguring container, the students will experience the seven butoh worlds with Waguri’s Butoh Kaden.

Yukio Waguri Intensive Session
Dates: 16 – 26 September (day off: 21 September)
Times: 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Cost: $580
Dancing Hijikata’s Butoh
This session will deepen the understanding of the Butoh notation of the seven worlds. At the same time, students will be encouraged to develop a clear working relationship between space and time and practice reserving the power to take an objective analysis of their dances.

Times: 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Cost: $580

Butoh and Noguchi Taizo
Introductory and Intensive Sessions will deal with Thormann’s statement, “In my workshop I do not convey any fixed form or technique, but the natural principles that form the basis of movement (spiral, wave, gravity, emotion, etc.). We will focus on movements like standing and walking, as well as on emotional forms of expression. We will establish a basis that will enable us to exchange conventional patterns of movement for fresh approaches that will help us to execute movements easily but with a deeper sensation."

Yukio Suzuki Introductory Session
Dates: 22 – 24 October
Times: Friday 6 – 10 p.m. / Saturday & Sunday 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Cost: $240
Re-construction of Your Body
Students will learn how to be aware of and move the body, according to butoh principles, so as to gradually betray their habitual movements and way of thinking. That is, to try to change the texture of the body as a thing. Then, to play with the new thing.

Yukio Suzuki Intensive Session
Dates: 28 October – 7 November (day off: 2 November)
Times: 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Cost: $580
Standing and Disable Standing
Students will try to make their own space and time with an idea provided by Suzuki, keeping the situation unstable: standing and disabling standing, coexisting with two contradictory things, leading to an awareness the body as always unstable yet in control.

LEIMAY Open Training
Times: 3 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Cost: $15 per class; $10 per class for NYBK students
Lead by Artistic Director Ximena Garnica, LEIMAY Open Training will take place every Saturday during the months of August, October and November. This class is an opportunity to experience the company’s ongoing training and to be considered for LEIMAY performance and investigation projects.

Mari Osanai lives in Japan. She trained in Classical Ballet, Noguchi Taizo, Yoga, Tai Chi, Hip Hop, Aomori Tsugarou Teodori and Jazz. Her unique movements and original style are realized through interweaving these diverse techniques. Two teachers who have greatly influenced her artistic path are Michizo Noguchi, the founder of Noguchi Taizo, and Hironobu Oikawa, one of the most important contemporary Japanese dance teachers. She has taught and presented her work in Greece, Canada, Japan and the Unites States.

Yukio Waguri was the main male dancer at Tatsumi Hijikata’s Asbestos-kan from 1972 to 1978. From this period, he kept notes of the words Hijikata-butoh’s co-founder-spoke while choreographing. These words are called Butoh-fu, a unique method for choreography. Waguri has made his own interpretation of these words and continues to use them as a method for his own choreography and teaching. Over the past 28 years he has taught and choreographed around the world. He is the Artistic Director of the Kohzensha Butoh Company.

Imre Thorman completed his education in the F.M. Alexander technique in 1990. Soon after, he relocated to Tokyo. He spent seven years learning Japanese and studying with butoh co-founder Kazuo Ohno and with Noguchi Taizo founder Michizou Noguchi. His experience with these three methodologies converged to create his unique dance approach and teaching method. Since 1993, he has put on several butoh solo performances in Europe as well as in Japan and initiated the Japan Now Festival in Bern (Switzerland) and Gdansk (Poland), together with Shigeo Makabe. He currently lives and works in Berlin and travels throughout Europe teaching and performing.

Yukio Suzuki is one of Japan’s most exciting choreographers and dancers. He studied butoh at the “Karada no Gakko” of the Asbestos-kan and from Ko Murobushi. While leading his own company, Kingyo, Suzuki also dances for Ko Murobushi’s company Ko & Edge Co. and has danced for Tuyoshi Shirai, Goro Namerikawa (the starting member of Sankaijuku), and in the performance group SAL-VANILLA. Recently, he has choreographed for other companies including the Tokyo City Ballet, participated in the final Next-Next program of the Saison Foundation, and won the Choreographer of the Next Generation award in 2008.

Ximena Garnica is the Artistic Director of LEIMAY, an interdisciplinary project company and laboratory of performance in residence at CAVE. A student of theatre since childhood, Garnica has been exploring butoh for the past decade. Her work questions the body as a medium and dance, theater, and/or installation as a genre.

Founded in 1996, CAVE is one of the longest-running experimental art spaces in the Williamsburg, Brooklyn. CAVE strives to provide an explorative arena and support system for artistic development by hosting studio workspace, educational workshops, performance opportunities and assistance in the realization of projects that support risk taking in the in visual, media and performing arts.
