Welcome to ACDA West Conference 2019 The Art of Moving!  Be open to new friends, new ideas, new experiences. Enjoy!

ACDA recognizes that Art can provoke; therefore, during the course of the conference, participants are empowered to remove themselves from conference activities.

To All Conference Participants:
Just a reminder...The adjudication process is structured to ensure that feedback and the selection process is as objective as possible.

Adjudicators do not know the names of schools or choreographers presenting work in the adjudication concerts. In order to keep the integrity of this ACDA policy and process in tact through the adjudicators’ final decision, it is necessary to ask all conference participants to avoid conversation with adjudicators about the adjudicated dances, the adjudication process, or their comments during the feedback sessionIn addition, please do not discuss your school’s programs or your own work with the adjudicators. Your full cooperation is being requested for the enjoyment of all conference participants, including the adjudicators!

Thank you in advance!

This Contemporary Dance class will begin with a dynamic and sensory warm-up, incorporating integrated and full-bodied movement. With sound anatomical alignment and technical versatility, the class will explore ideas of release, momentum, inversion and articulation. Class progresses into rigorous, kinetic and complex phrase work that is athletic, lush and highly physical. Kristen’s style and aesthetic is greatly informed by her work with the Doug Elkins Dance Company (NYC), as well as classical and contemporary dance techniques, yoga, martial arts, hip-hop and improvisation. This class is geared toward challenging the dancer to make bold and powerful choices in a safe and healthy way while building a sense of community and support in the space.
