Please join us for a dance/theater improvisation workshop on 

from 2:00-4:30pm

The workshop will include:
Warm-up and group movement exercises
Prompt-based writing
Open/facilitated group improvisation

The workshop is based in The Viewpoints method, a method which is often used by theater and dance companies to develop new performative work. Using a series of exercises which lead into open movement, dancers work with their own impulses, each other, the space, and a shared movement vocabulary.

Who should consider attending this workshop: Contact improvisers, ecstatic dancers,
improvised dancers, and dancers of all kinds!


About Your Facilitator - Toni Baum
I’m a facilitator, performer, and dancer in Austin TX. I’ve been acting since I was 5;
majored in Theater Arts at Vassar College; and trained for a semester at The London

Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. I’ve developed and performed devised and improvised theater (theater that starts with movement and starts without a script), and I’ve trained extensively, as well as developing work, with The Viewpoints method. I’ve
facilitated primarily for youth, including touring an educational theater production in
Austin-area schools.
