This workshop is designed for any teacher interested in movement and a collaborative creative process. Dancers and non-dancers alike are welcome to apply! Larry Keigwin, a choreographer whose work often includes non-dancers, will harness the group’s collective enthusiasm and inspire participants to discover their own physicality and creativity as they miraculously create their own dances. The result will be a learning experience that highlights the joy of the creative process and emphasizes creation as a journey taken with others. The day will culminate with a performance that evening of the day’s created dances, in a variety show that will also include KEIGWIN + COMPANY repertory and the work of guest artists
Larry Keigwin is a native New Yorker, choreographer, and curator who has danced his way from the Metropolitan Opera to downtown clubs to Broadway and back. He founded KEIGWIN + COMPANY (K+C) in 2003 and, as artistic director, Keigwin leads the company as it performs at theaters and dance festivals around the world, including the Kennedy Center, the Joyce Theater, New York City Center, and others. Keigwin has created twenty-four works for K+C, in addition to the large-scale community project, Bolero, which has been commissioned in sixteen communities nationwide. Commissions include Paul Taylor’s American Modern Dance, Royal New Zealand Ballet, and Martha Graham Dance Company. His work in musical theater includes Tales of the City at ACT in San Francisco and Rent off-Broadway, for which he received the 2011 Joe A. Callaway Award. In 2013, Keigwin choreographed Broadway’s If/Then, starring Idina Menzel. As COVID-19 shifted the world of dancemaking online, Keigwin created acclaimed virtual works, with high-profile commissions from Juilliard, Paul Taylor Dance Company, Works & Process at the Guggenheim, and Fire Island Dance Festival. Keigwin is also a co-founder of the Green Box Arts Festival and the dance editor of ArtDesk magazine.
