“Quite simply, my motivation for training in this technique is that it has made me a stronger, smarter dancer for all my other projects. Beyond the functionality as a physical warm-up, the class structure is embedded with ideas central to Cunningham’s artistic legacy.”

“For a working dancer in the city I have yet to find an environment as connected as the one surrounding these classes. The dancers who attend as well as those who teach provide a connection to our field that is incomparable."

WORKSHOPS

“I feel that the work has challenged me to be precise and efficient. It has challenged me to be rhythmically clear and exact. I really appreciate that there is never anything extra to be 'put on' or added, and I have to find my own meaning in dancing. It feels like each piece I've learned requires me to step into a different realm.”

Benny Olk
Freelance dancer, currently working with Lucinda Childs Dance Company, Moriah Evans and Daniel Roberts; graduate of NYU Tisch School of the Arts

“People often wonder what is the best way to support and foster the development of emerging artists. I think the workshops are a great solution. What could be better than working to improve technique and learn prestigious repertory under the direction of insightful and interested coaches? It is a great introduction to the NYC dance scene.”

Andrew Harper
Independent choreographer; graduate of University of North Carolina School of the Arts
