Dance Investigations

LauraH’s practice is based on her relationship to the earth, a tool to attune oneself and others to a sense of belonging. Committed to growth in her Artistic practices, Dance helps access new pathways of thinking and acting with her hands and body. 

Having a traditional Ukrainian folk ballet background and a love for two-stepping inspired her approach to dance practice. Combining Bohemian principles of folk dance into modern spontaneous social functions, creating what she calls Mosh Polka and Beatbox Bagpipin.  

Loving dances that celebrate the ‘common folk’ along with a rich history of collaboration in her visual arts practice is what led her to discover Contact Improvisational Dance and began her practice in 2016 under Kyle Syverson. LauraH is fascinated with this practices complexity and beauty to translate movement; the song of the body.  

The Human Loom was a process driven Community Arts Project that inspired future dance investigations titled: Dances With Props.

Dances with Props was a solo practice as a contact improvisational dancer and choreography, by Laura Hosaluk, fostered through KSMAB Dance Company. 

Works will be developed in isolation through a committed 14-day process of dancing with props outdoor among geese and the trees. Props can stand in for the contact dancers that would normally rehearse and practice with.
