Wednesdays 10:00-11:30 am Open Ballet with Natascha Greenwalt

Natascha Greenwalt is a Walla Walla native. She left the rolling hills to pursue a dance degree, and in 2005 graduated magna cum laude from Cornish College of the Arts as a Kreielsheimer Scholarship recipient. Natascha spent her summers training with the Joffrey Ballet, Alonzo King’s LINES Ballet, and the American Ballet Theatre in New York, as well as the Northwest Professional Dance Project in Portland, OR. She has had the pleasure of performing with many local companies including Ballet Bellevue, DASSdance, and Spectrum Dance Theater before embarking on the adventure of creating Coriolis Dance with Christin Call where she has served for 8 seasons as Co-Artistic director. It’s been her honor to perform works by Donald Byrd, Zoe Scofield, Jason Ohlberg, Twyla Tharp, among many others. In addition to her work with Coriolis Natascha is an inaugural member of House of Verlaine, Directed by Lily Verlaine.

As a choreographer Natascha has been commissioned by Ballet Bellevue, Whitman College, Western Washington University, and as a guest for the Cornish College of the Arts BFA performances. Tethered Apparitions, which she created on Coriolis Dance, received an Artist Trust GAP Award and was presented by Chop Shop: Bodies of Work, and Spotlight on Seattle where according to the Seattle Times it was a “highlight” of the festival. She has been awarded residencies at Studio Current, Open Flight Studios and as a Creative Resident at Velocity Dance Center. Natascha is a certified GYROTONIC® instructor at the GYROTONIC® Movement Center, as well as a ballet instructor at Westlake Dance Center, and has served as a guest instructor for Whitman College SDL and the Montana Dance Arts Association, DANCE This and Velocity Dance Center’s Strictly Seattle.

CLASSES WITH AMY J. LAMBERT:

MONDAYS: OPEN Level BALLET 10-11:30am
TUESDAYS: INTERMEDIATE Level BALLET 7:15-8:45pm
SATURDAYS: INTERMEDIATE Level MODERN 12:30-2pm

EXCITING NEWS!
Exit Space has installed marley on the floors in studio 1! This means we now have marley for the Tuesday night 7:15pm Intermediate Ballet class! Woohoo!!

 

 

 

 

 

Amy J Lambert (Johnson) began her early dance training at DanceWorks in Vancouver, WA and Portland Metro Performing Arts in Portland, OR. While at DanceWorks she received training from the American Academy of Ballet’s Performance Program (Levels 5-12). Amy furthered her formal dance education at San Francisco Conservatory of Dance and Cornish College of the Arts, graduating in 2011.

Since 2011 Amy has been performing as a freelance dance artist and is a current company member of BadmarmarDANCE. She has had the pleasure of working with and performing works by Merce Cunningham, Robert Battle/Battleworks, Tonya Lockyer, Daniel Linehan, Amy O’Neal, Markeith Wiley & The New Animals, Maya Soto, Deborah Wolf, Tim Smith-Stewart, Molly Sides, and Dylan Ward, among others.

Amy directs and choreographs for her own company, AJnC Dance, and was a collaborator of the multi-disciplinary collective The Eternal Glow Project. She is a co-producer with Men In Dance/Against the Grain and Evoke Productions.

Check out this video of Amy at Exit Space!

 

Amy J’s ballet class is centered around timing and rhythm to develop dynamic technique and musicality. Class is approached with a holistic warm up of the body to prepare the dancer for use of rotation and presentation of the body at barre and center floor. Dancers are encouraged to revel in the complexity and demand of ballet technique in a good-natured attitude.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY:
All humans dance. Sometimes we dance as we navigate a busy sidewalk or juggle walking with too many bags. We dance when we move around a kitchen to put dishes away and toss to find the most comfortable spot in bed. Sometimes we dance in a dance studio. When I am working inside a dance studio or with dance students there are three pillars to my focus of teaching.

Dance as a means to develop memory, muscle control, motor function, and coordination to improve our ability to move throughout our lives with more ease and efficiency.

Dance as a means to express oneself emotionally and reimagine ourselves physically. Developing creativity and imagination through imagery of space, movement, and dynamic.

Dance as a means to develop the artistry of dance technique. To become capable, fluent, and safe moving within a codified dance form. To push and grow the expectation, strength, and musicality of the body as a solo and ensemble artist.

Update For Ballet Classes in August, 2017

In need of some ballet class options?  Well, just in the nick of time, here are some exciting, new class opportunities!  Located in my neighborhood, the beautiful south end of Seattle…

at YAW Theater

Presents…

From Lily Verlaine:

“Hello, darlings. It is with great excitement that I announce that House of Verlaine will be offering an open ballet class beginning tomorrow at Yaw Theater in Georgetown. The class will be taught by myself, Thomas Phelan and the distinguished Bruce Wells. Check our website for up-to-the-minute instructor schedule. The class will run right up until An Evening in The House of Verlaine on August 31 at The Triple Door, so come get your plié on with us while we train for opening night!”

Beginning August 14 and ending August 30, House of Verlaine opens our doors to dancers at an intermediate or above level of ballet for a 90 minute, 10am class Monday-Friday.  This class will be given by Lily Verlaine, Bruce Wells, Thomas Phelan and guest instructors (TBA) on a rotating basis. This class is faithful to the classical structure, emphasizing placement, breath and suppleness of the body.

Schedule August 14-18:
Monday: Thomas Phelan
Tuesday: Rachel Gourd
Wednesday: Bruce Wells
Thursday: Rachel Gourd
Friday: Bruce Wells

Then, catch their show:

From their web site: http://www.houseofverlaine.com/new-events/

Thu, Aug 31, 2017, 7:00pm  Fri, Sep 1, 2017, 10:00pm

This summer’s Evening in the House of Verlaine  focuses on a risqué and ingenious retelling of the romantic, classic ballet Giselle that will both haunt and excite. Performed by House of Verlaine’s Exquisite Assemblage of Daring Classical Artists, the best in dance and burlesque, this Giselle is driven by hedonism, isolation, and vengeance. When power becomes the Willis – ghosts of scorned women – two young lovers trapped in a bed and breakfast find themselves haunted and manipulated to gripping end. With scenic design by Gregory Award-winning artist Julia Welch and choreography by internationally-known and widely awarded artist Lily Verlaine, this retelling is a new creation out of Seattle filled with beauty, creativity, and above all, dance.

Guests of this production will have an opportunity to preview Ms. Verlaine’s newest and upcoming work, a retelling of Romeo & Juliet, and will also be invited to a champagne toast at intermission to celebrate this latest artistic creation.
