SCHEDULE OF WEEKLY BUTOH CLASSES WITH VANGELINE THEATER
2017/18


Butoh is an avant-garde performance art form which originated in Japan in the 1950’s.
One of the major developments in contemporary dance in the latter half of the 20th century, Butoh combines dance, theater, improvisation
and influences of Japanese traditional performing arts to create a unique art form that is both controversial
and universal in its expression.

Vangeline’s Butoh classes incorporate Japanese Butoh, elements of Noguchi gymnastics, and guided imagery to offer a high-energy workshop adapted to each group’s level of physical fitness.

Our Butoh classes are a $20 suggested donation, with a $15 minimum.
You can pay for class either:
1) cash before each class
2) you have the option of buying one class now via PAYPAL or DEBIT/CREDIT CARD, valid one year from date of purchase.

Vangeline draws on 16 years of experience as a Butoh teacher and Butoh performer. She is the winner of the 2015 Gibney Dance's Beth Silverman-Yam Social Action Award, and the founder of the 10-year running, award-winning program “Dream a Dream Project", which brings Butoh dance to incarcerated men and women at correctional facilities across New York City. Recent invitations include a creative residency in 2016 at Princeton University (Princeton Atelier).

This unique training is an invaluable tool for dancers, actors, adult beginners, encouraging participants to open up and expand physically and energetically. This workshop creates a gentle and supportive environment to start an individual and collective process of investigation through creative movement.
Our classes are open level and beginners are welcome.

This program is supported in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
