Eryc Taylor Dance currently conducts twelve workshops a week for the following organizations: PGCMH, CUCS, NYU Langone Medical Center, Odyssey House, and Acacia Network. The workshops inlcude:

Movement Expressions
This workshop has been proven to garner the most attendance within supportive housing as well as the greatest resonance with the participants. The focus of the exercises is to improve self-expression and by doing so, relieve stress & develop coping skills. The movements are tailored to non-dancers and allow them to become aware of their own physical strength and creativity. It’s a simple first step to turning their life around.

Breath & Energy
Participants learn to use gyrokinesis, movement, and breathing exercises to increase strength, improve flexibility, and decrease stress. 

Strength & Conditioning + Hip-Hop
We also offer a more fitness oriented workshop, which uses bodyweight, yoga, and pilates. For children, we have Dancehall & Hip-Hop workshop.

As supportive housing moves toward more deeply integrating physical and behavioral health, this is an opportunity to improve both and help folks gain a sense of empowerment along the way.

ERYC TAYLOR DANCE AT ACCESS8

Eryc Taylor Dance has partnered with Gibney Dance Access8 to produce three master dance classes for a special discounted price available to all NYC dancers. This is an amazing program that allows dancers to take a master level class that would otherwise be unaffordable. 

February 27th, March 1st, & March 3rd
2:00 - 4:00 PM


 

Compañia Umbral Danza Contemporanea

In 2015, ETD toured to Merida, Mexico and performed at the International Dance Festival Avant Garde. During the week long stay, we partnered with the producers, Umbral Danza, to give three 4-hour workshops to young dancers, orphans, and violated youth. 

At the beginning of the workshops, the children were very soft spoken and incredibly shy. By the end of the first day, they were clamoring over the dancers, grinning from ear to ear. Creating pure, innocent joy through dance, is more than we can ask for.

 Videos are coming out with the tour documentary soon!
