Rooted in groundesness and groove, dancers will be encouraged to actively approach movement with an open mindset as we eplore the freedom that exists within the contemporary form. Following the two-hour workshop, attendess are invited to a half hour Q&A with Simone.
Simone Stevens (she/her) an Atlanta native, earned her BA in Dance and Minor in Anthropology from Kennesaw State University in July 2017. One year post-grad, she moved to Chicago and trained on scholarship at the Lou Conte Dance Studio where she was mentored by Laura Wade, Ethan Kirschbaum, and Kristina Fluty. During that time, she also freelanced throughout the city and performed works choreographed by Alice Klock, Alysia Johnson, Hanna Brictson, LOUD Bodies, and Joshua Peugh, among others. She also performed as a company member with Katlin Bourgeois's Ensemble180 and was on faculty with Ethan Kirschbaum’s Chicago Movement Collective before joining Hubbard Street Dance Chicago last season. In her inaugural season as a member of HSDC, she was recognized as one of Dance Magazine’s Top 25 To Watch. Having performed works choreographed by Aszure Barton, Ohad Naharin, Jermaine Maurice Spivey, Rena Butler, and Nacho Duato in the first season, she is looking forward to what a second season in the company will bring.
