High Release Dance Unveils New Workshop For Established and Aspiring Performers

PALO ALTO, Calif., Monday, April 1, 2013–High Release Dance, an acclaimed modern dance company based here, announced today that for the first time in its 19 year history, it will offer a public workshop whose dancers will be invited to perform in its home
season gala.

High Release, a talented group of more than a dozen seasoned dancers and choreographers, is one of the only dance cooperatives in the San Francisco Bay Area, meaning that many of its members bring to the company their artistic point of view through original movement.

It performs across the Bay Area at a wide variety of venues and showcases, including Choreo Project, Fort Mason, Berkeley’s Works in the Works, Santana Row, Western Ballet and more.

The newly announced workshop offers all levels of dancers a chance to study and perform with the company during its 2013 performance season. High Release will showcase the workshop choreography and dancers in its Cubberly Theatre performance scheduled for May 31 and June 1, 2013.

Elizabeth Muller, the lead choreographer for the workshop, said: “This is the first time in the history of High Release that we have opened up our Home Season to workshop dancers.

We are looking forward to being able to work with our workshop students and showcase their work!” Dancers will be featured in one-of-a-kind choreography to debut during spring home season.

The workshop will run on Thursday evenings from April 18 through May 23. Interested dancers can register by visiting the company’s Web site at http://www.highrelease.org/
