Artistic Coaching*
Artistic coaching takes your already set choreographed piece from being a pattern of phrases to the complete picture of a stage performance. The goal is achieved by working on details, timing, and narrative. The process begins by understanding your theme, connection and intention of the piece, and then determining how you wish to deliver it. Anna will work with you to push out of the comfort zone, and allow for your body to find various ways of expressing the choreography. The goal is to give the piece life: let it become a part of you, and trust your body to simply tell a story.

Choreography + Artistic Coaching
Are you preparing for a performance or a competition but don’t know how to put it together? Anna will choreograph and coach you from the beginning to end of your journey from the studio to the stage. You will have a complete choreography as well as being ready to perform it on stage.

*Anna is available for artistic coaching over Skype

 

Workshops

Storytelling Workshop
Connect your body to the stories that move you in this novel contemporary pole workshop created by Anna Grundstrom. Harness your own, personal artistry and articulate your truth through movement with a step-by-step method that incorporates intention, rhythm, texture, and light improvisation to the kinetic phrase. This is your story, your voice, your narrative, and we will unlock that expression of self with experiments in contemporary choreography and musicality.

No tricks are taught, but fledgling enthusiasts and elite pro polers looking to expand their movement vocabulary, or contemporary dancers seeking a new canvas to play on will equally benefit from the skills and techniques taught in this workshop.

Partnering and Play (Contemporary Partnering)
This workshop provides a foundation for improvisation and ​pole partnering through group/partnering​ exercises built around moving in unison, contact improvisation, and body weight support. We will work with contemporary movement choreography as a base. ​Learn to communicate and create a dialogue with each other by using both your body and mind ​to listen, learn and follow, give and receive. Practice the initiation of movements within a group, use of visual focus and space, ​and explore basic contact points to safely support one another. The purpose of this workshop is to play and communicate using contemporary movements with those around you.

Pre­requisite: This is not a “doubles” or pole trick workshop. No dance background is necessary. ​ Bring heels, knee pads, and/or legwarmers
