Stair Dance Class with Alexandra Lucia
February 15 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$5.00
Int/Adv level class for dancers with contemporary experience
I am visiting Philly and so in love with this visit I want to meet dancers here I have never met before and dance with you on stairs.
I have been so inspired by staircases and what movement is possible for groups, individuals and partnerships. I have been dancing on stairs a lot since August and now I want to research with you!
WHO AM I?
My name is Alexandra Lucia, though many in Philly know me as Alie my nickname. I am a choreographer enthralled by site dances – stairs, circular staircases, monuments, museums, and rivers. I find my inspiration here.
I visualize performance as a painting in a site. I see dancers suspended on walls when I look at canals. I see performances with opera, dance, theater and circus when I walk below arches. For me, performance is a living, moving painting. I´ve been graced with the opportunity to perform and create on rivers, parking lots, bridges, abandoned hotels, memorial sites, churches, parks, and cemeteries.
From 2009-2017, I created site and stage works in Philadelphia. Notably directing INVISIBLE RIVER, a production company that created dance, music and theatrical works on the Schuylkill River. My work has been recognized by notable press such as Huffington Post, ABC, CBS, and awarded multi-year grants from the Knight and Wm. Penn Foundations. I have worked in event choreography for weddings, corporate entertainment, and festivals in Philadelphia, Miami, and Brussels.
For the past two years, I traveled throughout South America, Europe and to Canada as a digital nomad teaching English online and doing dance research with local contemporary dance and aerial dance communities. Now, I am transitioning out of this lifestyle and finding new roots again.
