Raising the Barre Weekend Workshops
The Raising the Barre Weekend Workshops are designed to “raise the bar” of ballet training for teachers and their students, nurture emerging artists, and revive historical gems.
Fall 2020 Workshop Dates:
Raising the Barre | with COMPLEXIONS Contemporary Ballet
Oct 17-18, 2020 Online Weekend Workshop
Registration opens September 8. Register by October 2.
Be introduced to NIQUE, the official techNIQUE of COMPLEXIONS Contemporary Ballet through this Raising the Barre Weekend Workshop designed for teachers and their students. NIQUE was created in the formative years of the COMPLEXIONS company by its Founders Dwight Rhoden and Desmond Richardson. This technique uses a classical ballet structure as its foundation, yet allows momentum, and the integration of a fully mobile torso, weight shift, and dynamics to enhance the outcome. From the barre to Center floor, NIQUE focuses on versatility and range – with a keen awareness of the fullness in physicality necessary to convey impactful dancing.
