Luciterra Format Classes

____________

What Style of Dance is This? Read more here

Luciterra's weekly classes are offered in a progressive, five level format. Our range of classes fits every experience level, from seasoned performer to absolute beginner! Each class begins with warm-up that integrates yoga and Pilates exercises which is followed by technique drilling and repertory.

The aim of our classes is to focus on strong technique and dynamic choreography while exploring histories and socio-cultural implications of the dance forms that have contributed to our practice. Discussion and thoughtful consideration of the topics of conscientious cultural fusion and socially-engaged dance performances is strongly encouraged in every level of our school.

Luciterra offers a unique multi-instructor format, which means that all four members of our performance company instruct across all levels of our school. Our students benefit from exposure to diverse teaching approaches and, periodically, receive additional support from a secondary instructor. In such classes, the “lead” instructor teaches while the “support” instructor is available to provide personalized modifications and feedback. We believe that this approach offers our students an in-depth and dynamic learning experience.
Classes start on time, so please arrive 5-10 minutes before the posted start time. Please arrive 15 minutes early on the first day of each session and when dropping-in, so that we have time to process your payment and say hello! Please bring a water bottle, a yoga mat, and dress in comfortable and supportive clothing. 

Class Descriptions

____________

RUBY

Ruby is Luciterra’s introductory-level class. In Ruby you will begin learning the foundation of the Luciterra format including muscular isolations, full body movement and working with space. In this level, you will pay close attention to developing strong, safe dance posture.

Each class begins with a mini-lecture about the historical and cultural influences on our company’s unique dance practice. The techniques and movements we learn in class are integrated into a choreography, which you will learn throughout the session and are welcome to perform in the end-of-session showcase.

Whether you are returning to dance, seeking a new dance practice, or taking part in your very first dance class, Ruby will provide you with a supportive and fun learning environment!

For a comparable class in our Spring 2017 session, try Sage 1 on Mondays 5:45-7:15pm

A 12-week session of Ruby will be offered again in Fall 2017 

 

____________

TANGERINE

This second level class is open to dancers who have a solid understanding of the techniques introduced in Ruby. In Tangerine you will deepen your exploration of the role of musicality in dance while learning more challenging foundational moves at a faster pace. If you have a solid grasp of the concepts and movement introduced in Ruby and you’re ready for more challenge, while still working on the foundational techniques, this is the level for you!

For a comparable class in our Spring 2017 session, try Sage 2!

A 12-week session of Tangerine will be offered again in Fall 2017 

____________

SAFFRON

Saffron is Luciterra’s third level class. Saffron instruction and choreography will focus on layering techniques and movements so as to create a more complex and nuanced dance. Luciterra will invite you to enroll into this class once you have developed a solid understanding of the techniques introduced in Tangerine and are able to successfully execute all basic movements taught in Ruby and Tangerine.

For a comparable class in our Spring 2017 session, try Sage 2 or 3!

A 12-week session of Saffron will be offered again in Fall 2017 

____________

COBALT

Cobalt is Luciterra’s fourth level class. This level is for students who have demonstrated full body intelligence and have refined the execution of all elements of the Luciterra format. Intended for students who have shown commitment and dedication to our school, to dance, and to themselves as dancers, Cobalt incorporates important discussions related to the practices and ethics of independent dance creation and community leadership.

For a comparable class in our Spring 2017 session, try Sage 3 on Sundays 7:30-9pm.

A 12-week session of Cobalt will be offered again in Fall 2017

____________

ULTRAVIOLET

Ultraviolet is Luciterra’s Repertory Ensemble class, by invitation for students to perform in Luciterra Dance productions. Ultraviolet focuses on a variety of dance techniques spanning a breadth of genres and emphasizes performance concepts and theatricality.

For students dancing beyond the classroom, Ultraviolet provides detailed refinement of both dance skills and stage presence. Ultraviolet students are expected to display a high level of professionalism in their approach to the dance form and to our production company. Ultraviolet students can be seen performing at various showcases and productions!

Ultraviolet is available by invitation only.

____________

DANCE FUNDAMENTALS

Dance Fundamentals is multidisciplinary mash-up class incorporating elements from contemporary, lyrical, and ballet. This series is ideal for adult dancers looking for an introduction to western concert dance in a welcoming and safe environment, or for adult dancers coming back to western dance after some time away. Thorough and in-depth technical warm-ups will develop students’ strength and flexibility. Focussing on clarity and fluidity of movement, students will improve stability in their bodies, increasing their precision in turns, travelling steps, across-the-floor combinations, and improvisational movement.

Students may select from two levels, encompassing a range from complete beginner to years of experience. If you are unsure of which level would be most appropriate for you, please don't hesitate to email us.
