L: KSDC loves featuring all our dancers talents, which is why we showcase all styles of dance. We strive to reach our inner dancers dreams of the art we love and let dancers learn and teach each other. As a group, contemporary dance is a style we feel all of our dancers excel in. Contemporary dances allows dancers to interpret movement and music in their own way, making each piece whole.
N: What are you most excited about for this year’s National Choreography Month?
L: Being able to collaborate as a group to create a piece for this show. We worked as a group exploring the movement and patterns to create the sequences throughout the dance.
N: Can you talk about the dancers you’ll be working with? What are you looking forward to and what are the challenges of working with this particular group?
L: The dancers featured in this piece are a combination of veterans and rookies. Some have been with the company 9 years and others just 5 months. Working together has created unique bonds with these dancers that we would not have found having just a choreographer teach the group. Having each dancer at every rehearsal would have been ideal. Working with missing bodies and minds tends to hinder the groups jive.
L: Survey Says: Mia Michaels, Sonya Tayeh, JoJo Gomez, Matt Steffanina, Kyle Hanagami, Gregory Hines, Travis Wall
N: What changes in your process to build a piece in such a short time span (one month)? How long do you usually take to create work?
L: KSDC typically choreographs their pieces in just four rehearsals, so as far as the time line, we didn't feel the pressure. We wanted to make this a special experience so all 10 dancers took part in the choreography. Throughout the piece there are movements created by each dancer that everyone learned together. We took each dancers movements to create all the phrases you will see throughout the piece.
