Open Contemporary Class with Kate Seethaler

The Iron Factory

118 Fontain Street
3rd Floor
Philadelphia, PA 19122

Friday morning contemporary technique with Kate Seethaler is an intermediate-advanced level dance class. Working towards a grounded and direct approach to movement, our practice is infused with somatic principles and experiential improvisations. Class work explores a variety of contemporary dance practices, including sensation-based floor work, improvisational scores, technically-focused warmup exercises, nuanced phrase work, and much more. We unpack the physics of movement, ride the wave of momentum, sweep unabashedly through space, and hone our perceptions to find sublime subtlety. Join us! Senses of fun and curiosity are the only prerequisites. Long sleeves and pants are suggested. 

KATE SEETHALER is an improviser, choreographer, dance educator, performer, and brand-newly relocated Philadelphian. Her artistic work moves from questions about the audience/performer relationship, the line (if one exists) between serious and silly, and utilizing improvisation to access other realms. Kate has had the recent pleasures of working with choreographers Deborah Goffe/Scapegoat Garden, Katie Martin, Stephanie Turner, and Whitney Wilson. She was most recently the artist-in-residence at the School for Contemporary Dance & Thought (Northampton, MA), during which time she created a new evening-length work--Homing--with four collaborating dancers. Kate has served on the faculties of Springfield College, School for Contemporary Dance & Thought, Aldrich Pilates, The Taft School, and at Smith College as a Gretchen Moran Teaching Fellow. She earned her MFA in Dance/Choreography and Performance from Smith College in 2016, and her BA from Springfield College in 2008. Kate can't wait to meet and dance with the folks of Philly!
