Stagecoach Foundation invites you to a free creative movement class with Andrew Pearson,
Unique opportunity to experience a master creative movement class with Andrew Pearson. Movement is integral to performance; don't hesitate to learn how to improve your performance by taking this class! Pearson is a Los Angeles-based dancer, performer, educator, and creator with roots in the technique and approaches of Lester Horton and Bella Lewitzky; extensive involvement in the contemporary landscape of LA concert dance; commercial, theatrical, and experimental work; experience in international teaching and performance; and artistic pursuits fueled by a curiosity in the inner workings of the human psyche mixed with a penchant for amusement.
"As an educator, I crossbreed the ideals of a nerdy academic with a sassy socialite. Operating under the belief that dance is a social activity, I approach teaching as a sharing of ideas, experiences, and passions. I place an equal value on form alongside self-expression, historical context alongside pop-culture, the virtuosic alongside the pedestrian, and hard work alongside enjoyment. I aim to provide tools that will allow movers to find both strength and freedom in their bodies in order to awaken our potential as well as our pleasure in movement. My class has been influenced by classical and contemporary dance techniques, somatic practices, a background as a fitness instructor and yoga practitioner, and late nights on the dance floor."
