BUTOH dance for non-dancers

Butoh (??, Buto?) is the collective name for a diverse range of activities, techniques and motivations for dance, performance, or movement inspired by the Ankoku-Butoh movement. It typically involves playful and grotesque imagery, taboo topics, extreme or absurd environments, and is traditionally "performed" in white-body makeup with slow hyper-controlled motion, with or without an audience. But there is no set style, and it may be purely conceptual with no movement at all. Its origins have been attributed to Japanese dance legends Tatsumi Hijikata and Kazuo Ohno.

There is a general trend towards the body as "being moved," from an internal or external source, rather than consciously moving a body part. A certain element of "control vs. uncontrol" is present through many of the exercises[ 7 exercises]
Exercises from Japan (with the exception of much of Ohno Kazuo's work) most all have specific body shapes or general postures assigned to them, while almost none of the exercises from Western butoh dancers have specific shapes. This seems to point to a general trend in the West that butoh is not seen as specific movement cues with shapes assigned to them such as Ankoku Butoh or Dairakudakan's technique work, but rather that butoh is a certain state of mind or feeling that influences the body directly or indirectly.

BUTOH sessions start March 15th to April 26 . Classes are Mon. and Tue. from 1:30 P.M. to 2:30P.M.

Pre registration requiered. Session fee $ 80.00

BOULDER JUICE - a must read novel about Boulderites!



Dear Company,

There is such a wave of joy here at Golden West from our residents due to the amazing show A Place to Be brought here this week.The dancers were magnificent and residents have been raving about the show on a daily basis, asking how soon you and your beautiful dance groups can come and perform again!

They especially enjoyed being encouraged and included to join in the dance at the end of the performance.

Thanks to Conrad’s expertise with cameras, we have an “instant replay” whenever we wish to re-live the memory of this wonderful event. This does not preclude having you back however!

Thank you, to all of you, for your giving hearts and delivery of a mastery level performance. Standing ovations to you all!

Wow! Wow! We were blown away. You were fantastic. Thank you again for coming. You were an absolute hit with the students and staff. We feel so fortunate that you were able to take time out of your day to come perform for us. I have several teachers that shared with me that they were so disappointed that they and their classes didn't get to see you all. We sincerely hope that you will come again next year... and hopefully for longer and for more kids. I guess a whole school assembly with you would have been better.

Thank you, thank you for your generosity.

Emerald Elementary School -Activities Director


Yes, we REALLY enjoyed the show ... In fact, I wish we would have just had the drummers going all day to keep drawing people in because after you left our foot traffic died off :( Ya’ll did a wonderful job!)

Thank you again and I hope to work with you again sometime.

Thank you everyone for participating in the fantastic showcases at the Library, at Juniper Retirement Home, at Emerald Elementary, at Golden West Assisted Living, and many others. What I hear from everyone is that we are a happy and joyful group of individuals who are real and have fun first. Also that we are true professionals! Bravo everyone!!!!

We are the only studio in town where politics do not govern our lives. We get along and help each other without expecting monetary rewards in return, just enough to pay the rent. We were able to bring together a variety of Martial Arts, Dance and Healing, something that many said was not possible. Anything done with love is possible!

We welcome and encourage participation in our classes from all interested, regardless of their income level.

We sponsor low income families in today's tough economic times and our rewards are plenty when we see the happiness and smiles the children and adults get when they come to our studio!

Every instructor works independently and we form a cooperative of experienced and proud humans whose objective is to teach non-competitive arts that will last a lifetime.

We do encourage participation in public shows, yet we do not force, nor make anyone perform if they do not wish to do so. The shows are a reward and a means to let the community , family and friends know what we are up to, also to promote the instructors' art and teaching talent. When you see us on stage, you can tell the difference!!!




A select group of strong, dedicated and commited students who want more than just belts, praises, kicking and punches. Those who have honor, integrity, spirit, discipline and kindness need join our elite group.


GIFT CERTIFICATES AVAILABLE. CALL 303-440-8007 for more information.
