Í vetur mun nýr dansþjálfari starfa við listskautadeildina þar sem Sóley Ólafsdóttir er flutt erlendis í meira nám og óskum við henni góðs gengis og þökkum henni jafnframt fyrir síðustu ár.
Danskennarinn sem mun taka við heitir Lauren Charnow sem sumir kannast við frá því í sumar en hún kenndi í sumarbúðum okkar akróbat kennslu.
“Lauren Charnow has been teaching dance and movement classes around the world for over 12 years. Lauren started her dance career performing in her parents’ theater company where she danced alongside broadway performers at the age of 10. Throughout her childhood, she studied ballet, jazz, and gymnastics. She studied dance in New York City at Broadway Dance Center and Steps. Lauren received a BA at Skidmore College in New York, USA where she studied psychology, exercise science, theater, and dance classes to explore how movement and physical expression can be used to educate and help others. In the United States, she developed and implemented programs that integrated theatre, dance, and circus with positive themes such as, anti-bullying methods, nutrition, and building self-esteem. Lauren spent three years in Chicago where she taught circus arts and performed with the Comedy Dance Collective and the Aloft Loft circus school. During the past few years, Lauren has been dancing in the air on aerial silks combining her dance and gymnastics experience. Here in Iceland Lauren is the founder of Kría Aerial Arts where she teaches aerial silks and circus courses. This summer she developed the interactive aerial performance ‘GAME ON’ which debuted at Tjarnarbio and is preparing to go on a world tour in 2022. Lauren is very excited to be teaching dance at Skautafélags this session”
Við bjóðum Lauren velkomna til starfa 🙂
