Butoh workshop with Vangeline at Gibney Dance

Butoh Workshop with Vangeline

Wednesday, March 30 / 6:30 - 8:00 pm

Gibney Dance at 280 Broadway

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

Vangeline draws on more than 14 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). She was recently featured on CNN's Great Big Story.
