    Class Description:

    As founding member and assistant to choreographer/director Abdel R. Salaam, Dyane has the opportunity to witness, process, and take part in the ever evolving choreographic matrix that is Forces of Nature Dance Theatre. A hybrid fusion of the movement forms of West Africa, the African Diaspora, ballet, Limon, Horton and Graham, the company uses these languages to empower its audiences and continue to bring awareness to the fragile environment we all inhabit. Eleo Pomare, Dyane dance mentor, instilled the value of technical embodiment: USING technique to investigate the myriad ways of bodily expression. He was the Master of sculptural exploration. We will experience both styles through the study of phrases found in existing choreography.
