Times Two Dance Collective
The Times Two Dance Collective was co-created by Brynn Bodair and Sarah Elizabeth Stanley.
Two times the Dance
Brynn and Sarah met summer 2016 at a workshop in New York. They reconnected in Los Angeles two years later and have been dancing together ever since.
Brynn is a graduate of Loyola Marymount University, where she earned a BA in Dance, a BS in Political Science, and a minor in Screenwriting. She is a current student at Southwestern Law School.
Sarah received a BA from Sarah Lawrence College, and is continuing her dance studies as an MFA candidate at California State University, Long Beach.
A collaborative Method
Brynn and Sarah employ a dynamic, improvisational, task-based approach in their creations.
While each new work is developed in a unique way, a constant theme in the process is the approach of “yes, and…”, allowing space for both Brynn and Sarah to explore new thematic, choreographic, and structural concepts.
Additionally, Brynn and Sarah aim to curate an environment in which each dancer is free to explore their own movement interests, collaborate with others, and exercise their choreographic voice.
Who, what, Where, when
Past engagements have included Deborah Brockus/SHIFT West residency, Bach in the Subways (LA), Max 10 at The Electric Lodge, and various performances at Loyola Marymount University.
