Dedicated to Improving the Lives of Blind and Visually Impaired People

Two Virtual Workshops on Anatomy and Audio Description in Dance Training and Performance: Tomorrow, June 11, and June 18, 2022

Dark Room Ballet with Krishna Washburn announces two upcoming workshops open to all, with priority given to students who are blind or visually impaired with no prior experience necessary:
Tomorrow, Saturday, June 11, 2022, from 4 to 5:30 pm EDT, the first in a series of detailed workshops analyzing specific anatomical details will cover No Diagram Anatomy for Dancers in the Dark Room Presents Anatomy in Detail: The Gluteus. Movement and conversation will help to cultivate scientific knowledge about the “gluteus complex” (also referred to as the “butt”). The workshop will also consider “Evolutionary history and the marvels of human variation.”
The workshop on Saturday June 18, 2022, from 4 to 5:30 pm EDT, will explore Voices from the Dark Room: The Multitude of Audio Descriptions and When to Touch Them. This session provides students with “the framework for thinking of audio description as not a singular process with a singular best practice, but as multiple art forms with multiple purposes.” The use of audio description in a variety of venues will be considered, including in Technique Class, for Narrative Performance, for two voices, and for the ensemble, or many voices.
