We are delighted to be offering a dance class for individuals living with Parkinson's disease. Instructor Shannon Stewart is a teaching artist with the Mark Morris Dance for PD® program. In Dance for PD® classes, participants are empowered to explore movement and music in ways that are refreshing, enjoyable, stimulating and creative. All are welcome - friends, family, care takers and people who love to dance.
Shannon Stewart is a teaching artist with the Mark Morris Dance for PD® program for people living with Parkinson’s disease. She was born in the south, raised in the Pacific Northwest and is currently based in New Orleans. As a choreographer she works with people and bodies of all kinds to make dances for stages, films, galleries, parades, music clubs and any other places of intervention. Her work has toured and screened internationally and she has danced professionally for Deborah Hay, tEEth, zoe|juniper, Salt Horse, Dayna Hanson, and many others. Shannon’s composition strategies are inspired by a lifetime of cross training in ballet, contemporary, breakdancing, yoga, Gyrotonic® and intensive study with Crystal Pite, Meg Stuart, Ralph Lemon, and Tere O’Connor, but are also informed by the natural and built environments, being an activist, a writer, and having an intense period as a caregiver. Shannon co-founded Seattle’s Vera Project and wrote a book documenting effective strategies for youth-led art spaces in the US. She has a BA in Urban Design from the University of Washington and an MFA in Interdisciplinary Dance from Tulane University. She currently teaches internationally at festivals and universities. Shannon is a certified Gyrokinesis and Gyrotonic® instructor.
