Join us for this unique opportunity to study the expressive movement vocabulary of Isadora Duncan. This workshop will explore the distinct elements of the Duncan technique and focus on solo dances from Duncan’s repertoire. Usually taught at the Mark Morris Dance Center, this summer we will shift to an online format.  We have carefully selected class work and repertoire that is adaptable to your remote learning. The workshop will be taught by Catherine Gallant, Loretta Thomas, Francesca Todesco and Marie Carstens.

Each 90 minute session will include immersion in the Duncan technique, an analysis and exploration of selected repertoire and commentary/discussion. In this current online teaching/learning environment, we will take the opportunity to look closely at the details of style, sensation, focus and flow as Duncan expressed the value of breath, spirit and imagination in human movement. Resources for further learning will be provided online after each session. The workshop sessions will be led by Catherine Gallant, Loretta Thomas, Francesca Todesco and Marie Carstens. All of these seasoned Duncan specialists have recently been teaching online and have designed the sessions to flow smoothly using the Zoom platform. They have also developed adaptations for participants in their various locations and situations. The class will function with the expectation of some prior dance knowledge however no Duncan experience is necessary. Age group recommendation is teens through adult. Dancers of all abilities are welcome. Please contact us if you have questions.

NOTE:  If you'd like to participate but find that limited funds are an issue right now, please contact us.
