Sandy Silva Workshops – July 16 & 22

Twin Cities Tap and the McKnight International Choreographer Program are excited to bring 2023 McKnight International Choreographer Sandy Silva to Minnesota for residencies in July and September, culminating in a new outdoor, site-specific work to be performed in late September.

The July residency will include two workshops with Sandy held at The Cowles Center in Studio 2B (2nd floor) that are free and open to the public. Dancers and movers (age 18 and older) that are interested in a role in Ms. Silva’s creative process in September should attend; percussively trained dancers and musically inclined movers are especially encouraged to participate.

ALL ARE WELCOME, even if you aren’t participating in the September residency! Participants can wear any comfortable clothing and shoes, and please be aware the workshop may move outdoors for part of the time.

About the workshops:
Participants engage in an embodied vocal and movement experience, which is shared through a common walking “pulse” incorporating thematic gestures, movement rhythms and vocalizations. The workshop includes activities for participants of multiple skill levels, using music, dance, and vocals. The result is an embodied meditation in sound and motion.
