This intensive will be grounded in the values and the mission of Acts of Matter: to bring together diverse people to enhance each others’ experience in life and in dance through sharing, listening, and learning.

We are excited to work with mature individuals with various ranges of experience who have  an interest in a deep dive over three days into investigation, self-reflection, rigor, joy, and community. Most applicants will have a shared goal of pursuing dance professionally.

Experiences will include class with Rebecca Lemme and members of the Acts of Matter family in the following:

  • Release
  • Improvisation
  • Movement and text/vocalization
  • Somatics

Each day will culminate in a creation session with Rebecca Lemme during which all participants will engage in a collective process working towards an informal showing on the final day of the intensive.

Additional faculty: Andrea Sobke for Pilates and Gyrotonic, Veronica DeSoyza for Yoga, Kevin Williamson for Moving/Sounding (improv/creation), and Malachi Middleton for Framing (camera work).

Participation is first-come-first-serve for those who have already trained with Rebecca Lemme.

Prospective participants who have never trained with Rebecca Lemme will be asked to provide a short description of their training and submit links to video of themselves in both improvisation (2 min) and set material (minimum 1 min).
This improvisation can be in any style but should show a diversity of dynamics, qualities, and speed. Music optional. The set repertory can be your own choreography or someone else’s. It can be an excerpt of a longer piece and can be in studio or on stage.

After submission of your application, you will receive an email with your application status. Once accepted you will also receive instructions for payment. We accept Venmo, PayPal, cash or check.
Your registration is not secured until payment goes through and you have received a confirmation email.

Scholarship deadline: November 1 // If you are applying for scholarship you will be asked to provide a short statement as to how scholarship would better enable you to participate. All scholarship applicants will be considered and notified by the end of November or when we reach capacity (whichever comes first).

Thank you for your interest. We look forward to working with you!
