Class Description: Shay’s background in the arts was supported through martial arts, theatre and dance training. He continues to harness this background in his training and will utilize a blend of these art forms in class. The class will be focused on movement theory, technique and improvisational tasks that are utilized for the exploration of physical pathways and performance material.
Shay has been teaching dance since he was a teenager. He’s taught for a number of public arts programs including the Artist-in-residence program with the Vancouver School Board. He has worked with a number of pre professional programs and post secondary dance programs including Modus Operandi, L’Ecole du Danse du Quebec, NYU, SFU and London Contemporary Dance School. Along with teaching technique and choreographic theory, he continues to support emerging artists through company apprenticeship and mentorship program with his company Radical System Art.
