Where Dance Meets Space: An Introduction to Site-Specific Composition! Workshop through the Flynn in partnership with Shelburne Museum. Ages 15-20.

Join interdisciplinary dance artist Hanna Satterlee, teaching artist at the Flynn for this four-day performance project at the Shelburne Museum. Participants will be led through exploratory exercises in writing, choreography, perception and movement, enhancing the relationship between artist and space. The Gallery will be an active collaborator; both the artwork on display as well as the expansive and elegant architecture will influence the outcome of our composition. Our site specific work will be performed for the public on Friday at 4:30. The group will then relocate the work to an outdoor site in downtown Burlington Vermont on June 20th, 2020 to be featured in the Vermont Dance Alliance's "TRACES: A Day of Public Dance Happenings" event.

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. This winter, join Hanna for an 8-week Advanced Contemporary Dance class series at the Flynn, or witness her during "They Say A Lady Was The Cause of It" created by ERGO Movement.
