WFSS are six-week school classes that meet on Wednesdays, Friday evenings, Saturdays, and Sundays. WFSS give students an opportunity to draw connections by personalizing, creating, and expanding their experiences through participation in a variety of artistic endeavors– a festival within a festival. Jams, digital media classes, salons, somatic practices, and weekly showings express multiple ways students might choose to connect and present work in alternate contexts.
CyberDance sat down with Pamela Pietro, director of the Bodypathway series in WFSS, to hear more about the importance of somatic work for dancers. No matter where dancers are in their career is important to take the time to rest, rejuvenate, and most of all discover new ways of integrating the heap of information they receive in technique classes.
