Berkshire Pulse Young Choreographers Workshop & Young Choreographers Initiative

Tue, May 7 6:00pm

Berkshire Pulse invites you to an evening of innovative & inspired dance created and performed by the 2023/2024 members of the Berkshire Pulse Young Choreographers Workshop and Young Choreographers Initiative.

This program is a fundraiser for our Diane Pearlman Young Choreographers Initiative Scholarship.

Launched in 2023, this scholarship underwrites the Young Choreographers Initiative tuition for all students, as well as the senior choreography project, providing graduating dancers with the studio space, professional mentorship, and production support needed for the senior solo creative process. Choreographic exploration and process is an essential component of the Pulse Youth Performing Arts Program curriculum, incorporated into classwork beginning at age 6 and continuing with increasing intention as students progress throughout the levels.

This year, the Young Choreographers Initiative I has been collaborating on a group piece exploring the concept of home, including the complexities of comfort, unity, support, judgment, control, love, and confidence. They also have been working on crystalizing the essence of each other’s movement. The artists in Young Choreographers Workshop have created movement postcards incorporating text they have composed in short solo studies that are thank yous, apologies, complaints, or pleas. In addition, they have choreographed movement exploring their kinespheres using props.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the West Stockbridge Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
