Bio



Chafin Seymour is a native of Brooklyn, NY whose experience in dance has been investigative and eclectic. He began his training in earnest during his high school years with Dancewave and at the Packer Collegiate Institute. He received his BFA with Distinction in Dance from The Ohio State University in 2012. During his time there he was privileged to work with such artists as Susan Hadley, Vera Blaine, and Bebe Miller. Following this he returned to his home borough and had the pleasure of performing with Dante Brown|Warehouse Dance, Ni’Ja Whitson/The NWA Project & Anneke Hansen Dance among others. He also founded seymour::dancecollective as an umbrella for his choreographic projects. Since 2012, they have presented original work throughout NYC and nationally at venues such as Center for Performance Research (CPR), Triskelion Arts, Dixon Place, Livestream Public, Gibney Dance, The Current Sessions, New York Live Arts, Movement Research at Judson Church, The Ohio Dance Festival and The American Dance Festival among others. The collective works on a project-to- project basis with a rotating roster of curated artists. Chafin completed an MFA in Choreography from the University of Iowa in 2018 where was granted an Iowa Arts Fellowship and taught as a Graduate Assistant within the Department of Dance. He is once again in NYC and is continuing to make work with the collective as well as teach dance for various organizations within the city.

Class Description



This class is meant as a safe space to play with limits and make mistakes. In our work together we strive for full physical expression with a focus on fluidity, musicality, and intellectual engagement. By using dynamic range, weight and focus we will find a way into the moving body. Class begins with a cardio and/or floor based warm-up coupled with exercises meant to get us moving in multiple directions, styles, and in and out of the floor with ease. Yoga-infused lengthening to find our alignment and breath are built into this progression to bolster an efficient, safe and anatomically focused practice. We conclude with a cumulative combination that incorporates skills practiced in class and draws from a cultural palette including post-modern release, hip hop, and capoeira among other forms. Striving for a balance between a rigorous technical/physical practice and emotional/ intellectual investment in movement material aids in cultivating our inner performer and full-bodied self.
