The Metamorphosis Studio at TEN31 Productions curates a community space for classes, workshops, and performances where we encourage movers to apply mindful body awareness to the development of their craft. The MDC studio is a safe space where movers of all body types, experience levels, are welcome to explore the artist within! This space is also home to our professional company. Metamorphosis: The TEN31 Dance Company (MDC) combines the visual artistry of TEN31's costumes with movement based storytelling to create an immersive world of magic and wonder. Working closely with clients and event planners to create event specific performances, MDC breaks down barriers between artist and audience, allowing for a shared transformative experience. Our company name, Metamorphosis, reflects the ability to adapt our creative skills to an ever changing world, and to meet the needs of clients for custom creation. If you're looking to host a class, workshop or performance in our space, please contact our Artistic Director, Alicia Wilder at firstname.lastname@example.org For more information on our Youth Program (MDYP) pease contact our Youth Program Director Madison Ramsay at email@example.com
Katie has had an evolving twenty two year career as a movement and Pilates teacher and is certified through NPCP. She came to Pilates as a professional dancer in Philadelphia and continued her training here in Rhode Island with Catherine Cuzzone, Jen McWalter, Cheryl Turnquist and many others. Katie is passionate about teaching that is appropriate and accessible for everybody. During the pandemic she was able to deepen her knowledge of the body with live dissection workshops through Tom Myers and Anatomy Trains. Her dance background has highly informed her teaching particularly within ideas of anatomic imagery, rhythm, breath, direction, balance and the joy of movement.
