Welcome to Eve Stanley’s contemporary dance class,
where movement becomes a language of expression and exploration!

Our journey starts with a comprehensive technical warm-up, meticulously crafted to enhance strength, flexibility, and alignment. Through across-the-floor exercises, dancers refine their movement qualities, exploring dynamics, spatial awareness, and rhythmic precision.

Next, we venture into the liberating realm of improvisation. Guided by prompts and imagery, dancers unleash their creativity, diving into spontaneous movement exploration. This not only fosters individual artistry but also cultivates ensemble awareness and responsiveness.

Finally, we immerse ourselves in a contemporary dance combination, where technical proficiency intertwines with artistic interpretation. Drawing from diverse influences, our choreography challenges dancers to embody emotion, narrative, and musicality. As they refine their technique and delve into the choreographic process, they discover the metamorphic power of storytelling through dance.

Join us as we embark on this transformative journey,
where each step is a discovery,
and each movement a conversation in the universal language of dance.

Eve McKennah Stanley started dancing in her hometown of Frederick, Maryland at the age of 2 years old. After training within studios she auditioned for Barbara Ingram School for The Arts (BISFA), where she knew she wanted to dance professionally. At 16 Eve graduated from BISFA and was accepted into Shenandoah Conservatory. At age 20, she graduated with her Bachelors of Fine Arts in Dance and a minor in Entrepreneurship. She gained many dance and leadership achievements while at the conservatory. During her studies, she became certified in Mat Pilates through Health Fitness Education. Eve has had the great pleasure of performing with professional artists and guest choreographers as well as taking master dance classes/intensives with various companies. Following graduation, Eve continued her journey in her career along the East Coast.

Eve is delighted to bring forth her passion for performing arts as the Artistic Director of Italia Performing Arts Institute’s ARTEINMOVIMENTO Dance Company and bring a stronger dance presence to the Shenandoah Valley.
