Postballet Technique, originated by Co-founders/Co-artistic Directors Christin Call and Natascha Greenwalt, combines contemporary practices with a ballet class structure to explore sensation and imagery in the body. Along with barre and center work, Postballet class incorporates spinal/pelvis articulation, moving in and out of classical lines, and pushing the extremes of rhythmic dynamics.
Coriolis Dance is the creative nexus by which Co-artistic Directors/Co-founders Natascha Greenwalt and Christin Call create new, post-disciplinary dance works at the intersection of all art forms . They work together to create stories of strength and resilience through vulnerability. Their works are complex, emotionally raw, and highly stylized experiences designed to immerse audiences in meaningful and challenging ways. The Co-Directors have commissioned and created works for seven fully self-produced shows that curate a larger vision of the capabilities of ballet as an artistic medium with inherent technical rigor. In the 35+ works in its repertoire, Coriolis uses ballet technique as a self-aware vocabulary that, through manipulation and molding, is contextualized with contemporary issues.
Minimum of six years of current ballet training or attainment of an advanced level of ballet technique.
