In this course, dancers of all levels have the opportunity to grow in their creative movement and dance vocabulary. Pulling movement and technique from modern, ballet, and contemporary styles, dancers will be exploring self-creation as well as mastering the skills to pick up given choreography. Ms. Binversie comes from a dance lineage with ties directly to Gus Giordano, Jose Limon, and George Balanchine. As a performer, she has had the privilege to dance alongside Emmy Award Winners, former Miss Americas, live at the Joyce Theater in New York City and across the seas in Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific Islands.
With such a diverse background Ms. Binversie introduces the dancers to the various styles of dance and dance history helping each of her students gain an appreciation and understanding of the art form. Via her teachings, the dancers gain skills that translate directly into their everyday lives. Kinesthetic awareness, musicality, and creativity are key elements Ms. Binversie stresses over this semester-long course. Dancers are additionally introduced to various social dances including the Rhumba, Salsa, Cha-Cha, Swing, Waltz, and Tango. The dancers use Pilates as a form of cross-training for an entire day dedicated each week to this practice.
