In Adult classes (Multi Gen, Workshops) students discover dance as a means of self-expression, exploration, and community connection through creative experiences. Based in modern dance technique and improvisation, these classes welcome beginners of all ages and advanced students who are looking to rejuvenate their creative practices.

Frame Dance Films (also called Dance-for-Camera) – In its series of films produced annually, Frame Dance creates new experiences for audiences using technology to record and edit dance performance into dynamic video narratives that document stories that would otherwise remain unheard. Frame Dance has produced nine films since 2010 each from 3 to 40 minutes in length, including There’s a Height Limit, Satin Stich, Crease, Framing Bodies: Love Me & Shamed. Frame Dance videos are powerful because they:

  • offer audiences the familiarity of a screen in which to view something new and unfamiliar-contemporary dance can be
  • allow audiences to engage with dancers and the story outside the limitations of a live, real-time performance;
  • mingle and participate in the visual arts world; and
  • reach additional audiences members and artists via the films’ internet distribution

Built around collaborations with local artists of different genres, these performances expose dance and the artistic process to audiences. They relate the process of making dance to audiences, and develop scenarios where the audience’s presence impacts the work. Since May 2010, Frame Dance has presented over 40 live performances in the Houston area, all original works by Frame Dance with guest collaborators who are artists from different genres — painter, photographer, filmmaker, poet, playwright, composer, chef and musician. Unique venues are the hallmark of Frame Dance performances including the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, Jones Plaza, Miller Outdoor Theatre, Pennzoil Place, Photobooth on Montrose, Port Boliver Ferry, the METRORail, the inside of U-Haul trucks, art galleries, City Hall, and even a claw foot bathtub. Each performance features original musical compositions by emerging composers such as Charles Halka and Robert McClure, a rare find for contemporary dance companies in Houston. Notable performances include To the Brim for the ERJCC’s Dance Month, Quiver named a top ten dance work by CultureMap, and Dinner/Dance 19, an interactive dinner in collaboration with chefs David Leftwich, Adam Dorris, and Richard Knight.
