This event is a reservation-only Zoom workshop.
Participate in a workshop with New Haven native and member of EVIDENCE, Shayla Caldwell. You will learn tools to employ in the development of choreography, including improvisation, partnering, creating companion phrases, how to use space, music, and text.
Shayla Caldwell is a native of New Haven, Connecticut. She became heavily influenced by traditional West African dance after being introduced to the Guinean culture by mother and dance mentor Shari Caldwell. She has and continues to work under the instruction of Ali Tatchol Camara and Yamoussa Camara. She attended Educational Center for the Arts under the direction of Susan Matheke, Earl Mosley and Freddie Moore. She then went on to attend Virginia Commonwealth University where she was honored to work with faculty Scott Putman, Christian Von Howard, and Autumn Proctor. She presently works at The Caldwell Dance Center as Artistic Director and instructor. She is extremely humbled and privileged to progress with Evidence, A Dance Company and thanks God, family and friends for the unconditional love and support she is blessed with.
