Summer dance: workshops

So it's almost the middle of June already! Summer workshops and festivals are starting up all over the place, including here in Atlanta. I'm hoping to put together the next enews, and might even have a new intern to help with it, but until then, here's some news to tide you over (better than not posting at all, right?)

Staibdance is starting their workshop of evening classes this week, at Goodson Yard at the Goat Farm (aside from the classes on the 13th, which is at Emory). It's interesting how they formatted the classes, two back to back on the weekdays. Obviously to include us working stiffs who need to move at the end of the day!

The regular company in residence at Goodson, gloATL, has their R & D summer workshop starting next week on June 18, with two options, either 2 or 5 weeks. These are all day classes and repertory/choreography workshops. And they'll be performing Liquid Culture in various spots around the city toward the end of the workshop.

And in Decatur, at CORE on July 22-28, there's an intensive for those of you interested in improvisational techniques and Laban, with Emory's Lori Teague and Leslie Scates of Lower Left, who's based in Houston.

And elsewhere around town there are a slew of summer workshops at various studios. Feel free to post info on more things that you're excited about since I've just skimmed the surface!
