Movement Practice: Intermediate Dance Technique (DAN4314.01)

Daniel Roberts

This class will be based in the technique developed by Merce Cunningham for the purposes of his choreographic work, and address the articulations of the spine, codified exercises, complex foot/leg combinations, and jump training. The Cunningham Technique is known for its ability to strengthen the dancer’s individual awareness of space. The class aims to enhance the dancer’s resilience when dealing with change and stillness, as well as develop complex coordinations between the torso and leg work. Musicality and rhythm are inherent to the work, and will be the nuclei of all work performed in class. Alignment, coordination, and phrasing will be the main themes of this intermediate class.
