ABOUT KATIE ELLIOTT’S CLASS
Elliott’s athletic style incorporates full-bodied movement, clean articulation in the negotiation of space and quick dynamic changes in level, direction and intention. Elliott’s class format is offered as an outline through which each individual can address a unique set of goals, while being encouraged to see different perspectives in a concentrated shared experience of a supportive dance community.
With emphasis on the release, momentum, and breath of movement, each class develops vocabulary through a thorough center warm-up that is elaborated upon to help students understand how the most complex movement can evolve from the smallest gesture. Anatomically sound alignment and technical accuracy are emphasized, passionate performance strongly encouraged, and the joy of movement brought in as a constant reminder. Elliott’s movement is informed by her background in classical modern dance forms, early training in ballet and her background in visual art. Elliott received her BFA from the University of Utah and her MFA from the Hollins University/American Dance Festival program. She has taught residencies and workshops at numerous university dance programs, private schools and professional organizations nationally and internationally.
3rd Law teaches at a variety of festivals during the summer. We will update this information after the new year
Katie Elliott and 3rd Law’s company of dancers are available for residencies and workshops at a variety of levels. Past workshops/residencies have included commissions for arts education conferences/festivals, university programs, professional companies, private studios and K-12 public and private school programs.
