JUNE 25, 2015 // CULTURE, NEWS & NOTES //

As a heated real estate market intensifies the hunt for performance spaces, an arts entrepreneur and a real estate investment firm take over the old Zoomtopia.

Real-estate bingo and the scramble for performance and studio spaces continue to do an awkward dance on Portland’s inner East Side, sometimes executing a neat two-step, sometimes stomping on each other’s toes.

Latest entry in the dance: the former Zoomtopia space at Southeast Eighth and Belmont, where a real-estate investment company and an arts entrepreneur appear to be enjoying a mutually beneficial tango: WYSE Real Estate Advisors gets a new headquarters, and dance teacher and producer Subashini Ganesan gets 3,000 square feet of studio and gathering space that’ll also be used by several other arts groups. What’s more, both parties are happy with the arrangement. READ THE FULL ARTICLE.

DESCRIPTION: We are going to teach a shared technique class – sometimes together/sometimes solo, drawing on our combined 50+ years of research, teaching, and creating in the field.  Our questions about and interests in the nature of technique and training, and the centrality of improvisation, somatics and rigor to that training, will guide our teaching.  Come dance!
