Pilobolus's founders were not trained dancers, but curious and interested movers. Pilobolus workshops and camps emphasize our founders' idea that anyone can dance, and can create dance. Whether you take class regularly, haven't taken a dance class in 20 years, or have never danced a step, there is a place in a Pilobolus Intensive for you. Pilobolus focuses on how people, working together, can create form and movement to breathtaking effect. In Pilobolus workshops and camps we work with dancers and non-dancers alike to let go of preconceptions about dance and discover infinite forms of what is beautiful and possible.
Adult Workshops // Ages 17+
Experience the Pilobolus creative process during a five-day movement intensive at our home in Washington, CT. In these playful, group-driven, physical and fun workshops, Pilobolus teaching artists share the method that has guided the company for 40+ years. These workshops are great for dancers, as well as those with absolutely no dance experience. Participants will have time for dedicated play, to develop new tools to access creativity, improve one's ability to work effectively in groups, and think more efficiently on one?s feet. Each class will also attend one Pilobolus performance at The Joyce Theater in NYC, followed by a meet-and-greet with the dancers.
Week 1: Technique + Philosophy // July 21-25
Pilobolus fans and curious minds from all walks of life will learn to access untapped areas of creativity and improve effectiveness in a group.
