Following Flow- how does one thing lead to another? How do we interrupt it? What are our habits and how do we embrace or change them? Through a range of tasks, scores, and various movement forms, Sonsheree will find ways to challenge, build and create new pathways of moving both as a solo body and as an ensemble.

Sonsheree is a dancer, teacher, choreographer and costume designer. Her art is informed by a history of durational practice with dance, yoga and running. She creates dances based on everyday life observed from animals, art history and landscapes. From 2005-2015, she was a performing, teaching artist and associate artistic director with AXIS Dance Company. Currently, she is creating her own work as a performance artist and can be seen performing for various companies in the Bay Area. She is thrilled to return to AXIS as a teacher and assistant to Artistic Director, Marc Brew.

This class is designed to increase and enhance the technical and performance abilities of experienced students in the discipline of contemporary dance. Information and exercises for the movement phrases are drawn from a variety of technical and improvisational mechanisms and vocabulary. Through the practice and execution of center floor exercises, traveling patterns and choreographed phrases, the class places emphasis on spatial awareness, proper alignment, increased strength and flexibility, musicality and rhythm. The class focuses on an economical approach to movement by emphasizing the use of the pelvis and spine and addresses the ways one’s inner landscape, mind, and ego affect a movement vocabulary’s overall aesthetic.

And, besides, it can be fun and challenging to find your own way into and out of each pose.

JoAnn Lyons has been sharing her love of yoga in classes for people with disabilities and chronic conditions in the Bay Area for over 20 years. Her teaching is grounded in her observation and knowledge of the body and intuitive awareness of both the needs and potential of her students.

Purchase tickets

AXIS Dance Company celebrates its 30th anniversary and first New York Season with the premieres of Radical Impact, a commissioned work by newly appointed Artistic Director Marc Brew; The Reflective Surface, a new work by guest choreographer Amy Seiwert; and an excerpt from In Defense of Regret, collectively choreographed by Maurya Kerr, Alex Ketley, and Bobbi Jene Smith.

Marc Brew’s Radical Impact was created in collaboration with Composer/Pianist JooWan Kim, Artistic Director of Hip-Hop Orchestra Ensemble Mik Nawooj. Working together for the first time, Marc and Joowan explore what it means to be human through music and movement, investigating themes around politics and identity. The work draws on each dancer’s unique experiences and how their stories can be told through the medium of dance.

Bay Area choreographer Amy Seiwert pushes AXIS to a new level of rigor with her new work The Reflective Surface. Featuring an original score by Darren Johnston, this work begins with a ballet foundation which is transformed through Seiwert’s unique quirkiness, kineticism, and layered partnering.

In Defense of Regret rejects dance created through graphic or architectural vantage points to prioritize movement as a map of our interior landscapes. An excerpt of Alex Ketley’s contribution to the work is featured.

AXIS Dance Company celebrates its 30th anniversary and first New York Season with the premieres of Radical Impact, a commissioned work by newly appointed Artistic Director Marc Brew; The Reflective Surface, a new work by guest choreographer Amy Seiwert; and an excerpt from In Defense of Regret, collectively choreographed by Maurya Kerr, Alex Ketley, and Bobbi Jene Smith.

Marc Brew’s Radical Impact was created in collaboration with Composer/Pianist JooWan Kim, Artistic Director of Hip-Hop Orchestra Ensemble Mik Nawooj. Working together for the first time, Marc and Joowan explore what it means to be human through music and movement, investigating themes around politics and identity. The work draws on each dancer’s unique experiences and how their stories can be told through the medium of dance.

Bay Area choreographer Amy Seiwert pushes AXIS to a new level of rigor with her new work The Reflective Surface. Featuring an original score by Darren Johnston, this work begins with a ballet foundation which is transformed through Seiwert’s unique quirkiness, kineticism, and layered partnering.

In Defense of Regret rejects dance created through graphic or architectural vantage points to prioritize movement as a map of our interior landscapes. An excerpt of Alex Ketley’s contribution to the work is featured.
