Studio Class with PILOBOLUS

Music
Thursday, February 2
12:30 - 2:10 pm
Lathrop Hall 349
Cost: Free
Attend a free studio class by members of the Pilobolus dance group.

The core values of Pilobolus are creativity, collaboration and communication. Our workshops are designed to give students an experience of the Pilobolus creative process and our signature techniques of improvisation, partnering and collaborative choreography. Current Pilobolus dancers will lead students through an improvisational warmup, movement based problem solving, weight sharing techniques and group dance making.  The class concludes with a choreographic project and performance for their peers. Limited seating is only available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Meet the Instructors:

MARLON FELIZ (Dancer) has danced with Pilobolus since 2014, touring Shadowland productions around the world, and now presenting repertory and artistic programing wherever possible. Additional credits include a Broadway debut in the new West Side Story, and other musicals, cruise ships, and NYC-based companies. She received her foundational training in ballet and modern dance at New World School of the Arts, and completed her B.F.A in Dance at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. She is originally from Miami, FL.

PAUL LIU (Dancer) Paul grew up in New Jersey training in traditional Chinese dance and acrobatics as well as breaking. He has studied with the Nai-Ni Chen Youth Dance Company, the Academy of Dance Arts New Jersey, the Central Academy of Drama in Beijing, and the Boston Conservatory. He has worked with Avary Gerhardt, Fukudance, Hybridmotion Dance Theatre and is a collaborator with Motlee Party. He is almost always upside down doing floorwork except while eating or getting tattoos. Paul joined Pilobolus in 2019.
