Teacher: Lisa Allred
All of us herald from a time and culture where baskets were part of our everyday life. This is one of the reasons why dancing with baskets has such universal audience appeal. In this workshop, you will learn how to modify FCBD moves so that the prop accentuates the vocabulary without taking the focus away from the strength and beauty of the dance. You will learn:
– the different basket holds (right shoulder, two hand, balance)
– how to incorporate the basket into moves with very little adaptation
– a selection of fast and slow moves that require more extensive modification.
Although Lisa will be teaching the Basket Dialect she helped create with Dawn Ruckert that was featured in the 2017 ATS with Props DVD, you are encouraged to take all that you learn and adapt it for your troupe! By the end of the workshop you will be ready to integrate this iconic prop into your dance.
