Veteran's Movement Workshop

  • Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center Gym (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Exit12 Dance Company will be teaching a movement workshop at the Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center Uptown Campus Gym. 

These workshops:

  • Reintroduce a sense of self to the participant
  • Introduce the concept of re-purposing movement
  • Develop a sense of community and well-being through art
  • Develop dance-works that can impact audiences

Testimonials from participants:

"To have someone else in charge of my body reminded me of being a Marine," said Jeff Kay, an Iraq war veteran, referring to an exercise in which the veterans closed their eyes while the dancers directed their movements. "When you're a Marine and you're being sent off to war, someone's in charge of your body, your life," he said. "You've given your body away."

"I'm not somebody who easily leaves my comfort zone," she said. "As Roman says, there's no wrong answer," said Kristen Rouse, US Army Veteran. "And if I do something weird, that's my thing that's weird. And it's mine."

THIS WORKSHOP IS FREE

The Village at Woodside is reminiscent of village life from simpler times, where everything you could want was all together in one place, and neighbors could walk by within conversation distance of your front porch. Conveniently located minutes from downtown Aiken, South Carolina, just outside the gates of Woodside off Silver Bluff Road, The Village is home to a neighborhood of stylish new homes featuring Charleston-inspired architecture, wide sidewalks, landscaped parks, walking trails, and a growing variety of offices, shops and restaurants.

Choreographer Donald Byrd  

Return

Choreographed by Robert Garland for Dance Theatre of Harlem's 30th anniversary and staged for 12 dancers to songs performed by James Brown and Aretha Franklin, Return is "... a witty fusion of ballet technique and street gait whose irony toward rhythm-and- blues had the audience in stitches." (The New York Times)     

 

Ticket Prices: $73, 67, 62, 56, 51, 46, 35 and 29 (includes 8% sales tax and $3 fees)
