Youth Dance Intensive
BodyStories is thrilled to offer summer classes for mixed level juniors ages 4 and up! Pulling from our Dance Curriculum, we’ll explore different kinds of techniques and styles including contemporary, hip-hop, jazz, tap, ballet, modern, Central and West African, salsa, swing, and musical theater, as well as expose children to movements from our own repertory. All of this will create a foundation for dance from which students can learn how to create their own movements. In addition to dance instruction, students will also have fun using online platforms such as TikTok, iMovie, Zoom, and Triller to create their own dance music videos and films.
Classes are from 12-4PM EST. We will start each one with a fun yoga flow and dance warm-up to get kids energized. We’ll then have a technical skills dance class, followed by a lunch break. We come back to learn and create some choreography, and end the day taking what we’ve learned and making a dance music video based off of it!
Students can drop-in to take whichever classes they want during each day, with the exception that choreography classes require a full week commitment.
Ongoing Youth Classes
The Virtual Dance Experience Summer Intensive
An intensive for pre-professional and professional dancers (ages 17+). The BodyStories Summer Intensive continues our mission to unleash creativity and empowerment in dancers, now in the virtual world! Dancers will rediscover joy in movement, break through self-imposed mental barriers, find the humor in the body, and develop a deeper understanding of the relationship between art and activism.
Classes will be held from 12-5PM EST each day. Every day will start with a group check-in, to see where we’re at emotionally, physically, and mentally for the day, followed by a yoga flow and dance warm-up. We will have a technique class to refresh our foundations in dance and challenge ourselves with new approaches to movement, and then break at noon for an hour long lunch. We come back for an improvisation and choreography class in the afternoon which is led by Teresa Fellion for movement and writing, Cecly Placenti will join us for some of our writing portions as well, and John Yannelli and Muriel Louveau will join us for musical collaborations. In these classes, we will also discuss the current social climate and reflect on work that needs to be done to reshape and move forward. Participants will journal thoughts and abstract ideas from what they’ve written as inspiration for movement. Together, we will discover the physical language for deeper emotions from these writings, and they will be partnered with music explorations. Each day ends with some breathing and stretching exercises and group reflection to cool down, digesting of the day and looking forward to the next one.
Students can drop-in to take whichever classes they want during each day, with the exception that choreography and improvisation classes require a full week commitment.

Triskelion Arts Presents: BodyStories: Teresa Fellion Dance 2018
This Fall, BodyStories: Teresa Fellion Dance will be presenting an evening of repertory at Triskelion Arts, including a 2018 world premiere!
This performance will feature the NYC premiere of the beloved Bodystories piece The Warm-Up as well as the world premiere of reeling→ healing. The Warm-Up (originally performed at Southampton Arts Center with support from NY Community Trust) explores the role of dance as both exercise and art and showcases original music by John Yannelli and Glenn Alexander. reeling → healing is a new piece investigating the frustration and helplessness that can occur as a result of the constant barrage of misled policies and hatred infecting our country. Original music by Kevin Keller and costumes by Nina Katan add to the sense of urgency and need for community, working in tandem with the choreography to immerse the audience in a fully-formed world. As an intimate community, the performers and audience find a way to connect via “The Emotional Architecture of a Bridge,” an original concept drawn and created by Teresa Fellion that involves audience interaction.
RSVP suggested, but not required. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot at this exciting event!
7:30 pm: meet-and-greet
