Winter Intensive #1

First of two Winter Intensives will take place THURSDAY through SUNDAY DECEMBER 14 TO 17. It includes the performance of short excerpts of MCGD repertory (learned during the 3 previous days) at our Artists' Salon on Sunday 17, from 3 to 5PM.

"Ms. Giordano is clearly a choreographer committed to constructing a personal dance vocabulary.”  -Gia Kourlas, The New York Times.

I am drawn to the visceral movement quality of your work and its attention to detail and precision. I admire the strong importance placed on understanding your specific technique in order to allow your company to have a collective basis in which they move and develop material from. The Giordano technique uses the pelvis, abdominal wall, torso, and trunk muscles as a control center to guide and inform incredibly nuanced movement of subtlety and surrender while also holding the power and stored energy to be explosive and dynamic in range. –Alexa Bender, dancer from Canada

Working with Marie-Christine Giordano and her technique has been one of the most challenging and rewarding dance experiences I have had.  The work is raw and comes from an honest natural place while requiring extreme control and accuracy. The movement is not anticipated but rather a result of momentum and design. –Brooke Jones, Company Member
