Though the ultimate goal was to create elements for the Brickell Academy dancers, who range from third through eighth grade, to be used in the 2017-2018 school year, the Clark Nexsen team and the dance faculty decided to showcase the program’s fourth year of collaboration at a joint public-private event.
The event, hosted on August 5th, 2017 in the black box theater of Brickell Academy, featured a series improv pieces by seven collegiate and alumni dancers, some of whom were seeing and touching the elements for the first time. Once the dancers had the opportunity to dance with the elements individually, there was a more structured series of three improv collaborations, leveraging what the dancers had “learned” about the elements in their first piece. Finally, the audience moved to the auditorium, where the dancers performed three choreographed pieces in which they were to influence with what they “learned” from dancing with the elements.
