The Southampton Cultural Center offers a variety of dance programs and workshops.

Project PAUSE

Project PAUSE is a community collaboration to spread PAUSE through the creation of a dance inspired by the moments of stillness that we all inherently crave. The goal of the project is to have community members fill out cards that share when, where, or why they indulge in a PAUSE. The community’s reflections will be used to generate choreography for a new work that will premiere at the Southampton Cultural Center.

This project is made possible by choreographer and NYSCA grant recipient Kendra Mace Clark.  For more information, please visit the Project PAUSE website.

The Dance Performance Workshop is lead by choreographer and NYSCA grant recipient Kendra Mace Clark. In the workshop children learn the roles of dancer, performer, collaborator, observer, and choreographer as they prepare to take the stage. Participants are molded into young dance artists, as they work both independently and in collaboration with others to deepen their skills in dance technique, improvisation, performance, and creative risk-taking to make original choreography. Participants have the unique opportunity to develop and direct an original work for a performance at the end of the workshop. Their choreography will premiere at the Levitas Center for the Performance Arts alongside the unveiling of the NYSCA supported dance PAUSE, choreographed by Mrs. Clark.

This workshop requires a ten-session commitment. No dance experience necessary. Athletic clothing and dance shoes are recommended.
