Description

This course provides an opportunity for intermediate/advanced dancers to refine technical skills in contemporary dance and deepen the understanding of the body as an instrument of expression.  The class will combine a technical warm-up focusing on virtuosity and strength to improve the dancer's physical abilities, alertness and performance quality.

Students will then learn, rehearse and perform set choreography as part of I Capulleti e I Montecchi--a dance opera directed by Israeli choreographer Idan Cohen; this work will premiere in at the end of the spring semester with students and professional dancers and musicians.

Auditions for course enrollment will be held the first day of class. Limited to 20 students. Spring semester. Visiting Artist-in-Residence Cohen.

If Overenrolled: Audition on first day of class if over-enrolled.
