Welcome to movement crossings: an online archive of audio/visual movement scores and live classes. Open to students, educators, and dance professionals, this interactive site serves as a community discussion board to share/discuss ideas about having a shared movement practice. This site was created by Tori Lawrence (2019-20 Artist-in-Residence at Middlebury College) to use as a tool for remote-teaching her Advanced Improvisation and Technique Workshop students when classes went remote due to COVID-19. Tori and a group of educators and professional dance artists came up with a collection of audio, text, and video scores for solo movement explorations, specifically focusing on improvisation and composition.
Please feel free to use this site as a resource for online teaching and consider making a donation to the artists who created the scores and content. You can donate any amount securely through PayPal here.
If you're interested in adding to the collection of scores, or if you have any questions, feel free to email Tori: firstname.lastname@example.org
