Thursdays | 7:15-8:15 pm
Location: Studio C (3rd Floor)
This modern dance course will highlight the modern dance techniques developed by Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham, José Limón, and Jennifer Muller. These techniques are divided among various physical extremes: fall and recovery, rebound, weight, suspension, and isolation. These ideas can be illustrated in the way a dancer uses the floor as a place from which to rise, return, and then rise again. This is the way a dancer explores the range of movement between the one extreme of freedom from gravity and the other of falling into it. Curiosity, exploration, strength, and agility will be emphasized in this course.
Parents are invited to observe and invite a guest to the final class.
There will be no costume or performance fee for this class in the Fall.
