Ballet Wolcott presents: Contemporary Workshop with Hanna Satterlee

Join Hanna Satterlee in this intermediate/advanced workshop to study and practice details, intricacies and momentum in her style of Contemporary technique. Improvisation and technique will stay in continuous conversation in this movement laboratory, dancing from small to big, feeling from internal to external. We will condition our strength, stability and clarity, while simultaneously exercising our personal aesthetic and defining our own unique artistry. With guided exercises for soloists, partnerships and groups, we will dance for the absolute joy of dance.

Participating artists

Brandy Ofciarcik-Perez  received her Bachelor of Arts in dance from Point Park College in Pittsburgh, PA. Before that, she studied at the Pittsburgh High School for the Creative and Performing Arts, with the Chartiers Valley Arts Council Dance Company (later, The Carnegie Performing Arts Center), and Pat's Dance Studio.  Her dance education has focused on ballet, but also includes jazz, tap, modern, folk, and historical dance. Brandy's experiences took her to Frontiertown Western Theme Park in Maryland where she taught, created dances, and performed. Since moving to Vermont, she has been a member of the Vermont Dance Collective, taught at Johnson State College and dance studios around the state, and has collaborated with many local choreographers, teachers, and arts organizations.   Brandy has created original choreography for performances and community events as well as ballets and musicals. As an Artistic Director, Brandy helped to found Ballet Wolcott, ran dance/performance programs, taught (ballet, lyrical, tap, Broadway jazz) classes, choreographed, and directed the Ballet Wolcott Youth Company and the annual Nutcracker. Currently, Brandy is the Associate Managing Director at Lost Nation Theater.

Choreographer and dancer Hanna Satterlee grew up in East Montpelier, Vermont and has spent many years traveling through dance, both nationally and internationally. Hanna has produced her own choreographic and dance installation work, and has performed with professional companies in Vienna Austria, Stolzenhagen Germany, Baltimore, Manhattan, Brooklyn, San Francisco and throughout the state of Vermont. In May 2017 Hanna founded the Vermont Dance Alliance, with a strong belief that the culture of dance will continue to flourish and expand throughout the edges of our beautiful state. Hanna serves as the Executive Director, both managing a statewide network of dance artists, partners and patrons, as well as producing and curating high-quality dance events and opportunities for the public. Hanna is as passionate for the form of dance as she is in connecting people to it. Hanna holds degrees and certifications in dance therapy, psychology, performance, choreography, vinyassa/yin/restorative yoga, non-profit management and arts integration. Hanna shares these passions as an intergenerational educator, interdisciplinary performer and collaborator, experimental curator and event producer.
