MY STORY

Nol Simonse grew up in Washington, D.C., and trained at the Boston Conservatory of Music. He moved to San Francisco in 1997 and is a founding member of Kunst-Stoff, Janice Garrett and Dancers, and Sean Dorsey Dance. He is also a longtime collaborator/performer of Sue Roginski, Eric Kupers, Christy Funsch, Stephen Pelton, and Kara Davis. Nol has worked with many other Bay Area artists, including Mark Foehringer, Mary Armentrout, Todd Courage, Della Davidson, ACT director Carey Perloff and choreographer Val Caniparoli. Nol has been nominated many times over the years for an Isadora Duncan Bay Area Dance Award, and in 2011 was awarded one for individual performance "for his entire season, including A.C.T.'s The Tosca Project." In 2009 Nol received a GOLDIE for dance (Guardian Outstanding Local Discovery) from Rita Felciano, who has called Nol "an intense artist", and "a marvel of a dancer". Nol was the first person to win Luna Dance Institute's Choreofund prize, and Dance Teacher Magazine published an interview with him in the September, 2016 issue. Nol currently teaches modern at the Alonzo King's Lines Dance Center, and Shawl-Anderson Dance Center. He has taught choreography, repertory, and performance workshops for adults and teens, and has made dances for the Lines summer program, students at USF, Shawl-Anderson Youth Ensemble, ODC's Dance Jam, and Dance Mission Theater's Grrrl Brigade. Nol began teaching with Tina Banchero at Dance Mission Theater, and he participated in Luna Dance Institute's summer intensive and a pedagogy workshop with Janice Garrett. Nol produced eight seasons of 'Shared Space' with Todd Eckert at Dance Mission Theater from 2007-2016 and has had residencies at Dance Mission and Studio 210. Nol was one of the 25 nominated artists to create a dance for the 25th anniversary season of the West Wave Dance Festival, and was a 2017 mentee of Margaret Jenkins in her CHIME Program.

About this class

Modern classes at LINES pull form a long lineage of dance pioneers and visionaries. From Duncan, Graham, Limon, Dunham, Cunningham and others, Modern dance at LINES merges theory, approach, and language while focusing on intent and expression. Classes explore fundamental concepts of modern technique through anatomical awareness, alignment, spatial awareness, increased strength and developing sensibilities addressing movement quality.

Modern: Intermediate

About this class
Icon_ionic-ios-arrow-back Copy 4

INTERMEDIATE: For dancers with at least 3 years of modern training, Intermediate classes intensify focus on technique, alignment, and phrasework. Students coming into an Intermediate level class will have worked several years learning dance vocabulary, building skills to see and learn movement at a quick pace, and can apply corrections from a teacher. Intermediate students can confidently reverse material and work in class without the need to follow the teacher to know the exercises and combination. This class begins by bringing attention to the body. It focuses on core strength, pelvis stability, stretching and increasing technique vocabulary. We will work on standing confidently and moving efficiently. We will move across the floor rhythmically and work on phrases that include gesture and dynamics. Come and move your body in a fun, non-judgemental space! Please note: this modern class includes sit-ups and pop music!
