Contemporary Dance Theater is devoted to bringing our nationally and internationally-renowned Guest Artists into the community. That’s why one of our favorite programs is a series of open masterclasses with these amazing guest artists. Local dancers are invited to take class with the talented and innovative artists we bring to the Aronoff Center.

Next Up:  Everett from Providence, Rhode Island


Contemporary Dance Theater will present Everett on March 15 & 16, 2019, at 8pm, at the Aronoff Center for the Arts, in their new work, Good Grief.  Everett company members will teach an open community master class at the CDT studios in College Hill on Saturday, March 16 at 10:30am-12:00pm.  Read more about Everett and the Guest Artist Series here.

Class description: This particular community dance master class is open to adults and mature teen movers and dancers of all levels.  

Class description from Aaron Jungels, Co-Executive/Artistic Director:

“Join Everett Company for a workshop that shares the methods they used to create their latest production, Good Grief. In the creation of Good Grief Everett utilized the Internal Family Systems model of therapy, or IFS, to access and explore the performers various internal parts. 

IFS is an intuitive model that views a person as having three categories of parts – exiles, managers and firefighters, and each part has valuable qualities and wants to play a positive role within. Often our parts are forced out of their valuable roles by life experiences that reorganize our internal system in unhealthy ways. IFS recognizes that, at our core, we have a true self, undamaged by our experiences, that can heal our parts and bring harmony back to our internal system. 

In this workshop participants will identify parts of themselves that they want to work with. Other workshop participants will be cast as these parts and we will create scenes and dances based on the interactions of their parts.”
