With a format Artistic Director Jessica Lang devised and developed more than twelve years ago, Jessica Lang Dance offers a unique educational program that intrigues and inspires the imaginations of all ages and populations - dancers and non-dancers alike - cultivating creative thinking and enriching each community it visits.
LANGuage is firmly rooted in the belief that when practiced daily, creativity can lead to a more rewarding life. This unique approach teaches individuals from all populations to cultivate the habit of creative thinking through exercise, just as one would condition themselves physically. LANGuage opens minds and fosters resourceful problem solving and inventive reactions to challenging everyday situations.
LANGuage, with a vocabulary rooted in movement, was originally created for dancers. However, it has been proven that its benefits are not exclusive to those with a dance or performance background. All populations can benefit from its offerings, which include but are not limited to exercises in the following areas:
- Exploration and Improvisation
- Creative Writing, Music and Drawing
- Observation and Communication
- Space and Memory
- Movement Manipulation
- Time Management
