Azul dance theatre workshop

Azul Dance Theatre is happy to announce its annual workshop for intermediate to advanced contemporary dancers who are seriously considering a career in contemporary dance. Our workshop includes, a fast pace contemporary dance warm-up, improvisation exercises, and the learning of a new choreography added this year to the company's repertory. 

Among the topics that will be covered in the workshop are spinal articulation, sequential movements of the torso and the limbs, and the contrast between dynamic energy flow and sensitive expression. By utilizing the body as a tool of our expression, dancers will be inspired to draw through movement a 3D picture in the performance space.

The workshop will be lead by the artistic director, Yuki Hasegawa, and the company members. 


Date: Sunday Oct. 21st 2:30~4:00 PM

Location: Peridance Capezio Center

126 East 13th St., New York, NY10003

Founded by Artistic Director Yuki Hasegawa, Azul Dance Theatre is a corrective of NY based contemporary dance artists. Since 2004, Azul has created dances that convey the invisible flow of energy known as “Chi” in Eastern philosophy to express the sensitive relationship between individual self and cosmic force. Azul's work has been recognized for Hasegawa's vision of creating works influenced by traditional Japanese culture, but “vividly contemporary in feel.” 


Azul's first full evening work was premiered at Merce Cunningham Studio (presently Martha Graham Studio) in 2006. Since then, the company has maintained a presence in NY. Flower on the Desert (2014) was featured on Channel Thirteen, NYC Arts Program. Azul's recent work VISION (2016) investigates one's self-fight against fear and insecurity by projecting psychological images and ghostly illusions into contemporary dance. In collaboration with a multimedia artist Miskos Production, VISION was premiered at Tribeca Performing Arts Center.


Ms. Hasegawa and company member conducted Contemporary Dance Workshops at Gibney Dance Center and Manhattan Borough of Community College.


Azul is a recipient of CUNY Dance Initiative 2016 Residency Program at Tribeca Performing Arts Center, NYC/Dance Response Fund, and Queens Council on the Arts New Work Grant. Azul Dance Theatre/ Yuki Hasegawa is a fiscal sponsored artist through New York Live Arts.
