Level II Horton-based Modern Dance - 6:30pm-8:00pm w/ Jenny Oliver

Class is a Horton based modern taught at a pace designed for the students in the room. Class begins with sequential and consistent warm-up, continues with center phrases that are designed to promote competence and growth of proper technique. Students are encouraged through proper corrections focused on alignment and detailed explanations of the initiation of movements. This is important in reducing injury to both new and seasoned dancers. Across the floor phrases are poly-rhythmic in progression, promoting a sharp mind and allowing the skill of acquiring information quickly and accurately to develop. A person does not need to have the goal of becoming a professional modern dancer.

$15 drop-in


Level II Information: This class will continue to expand the vocabulary built in Level I, continuing to learn the fortifications, preludes and studies of the technique. The pace is quicker, and dancers are pushed to apply poly-rhythmic concepts and phrases together using musicality and body articulation.

She hopes you will take advantage of this opportunity to be part of this exciting opportunity to learn about the work of Leon Collins.

The experience will be an exploration of the totality of Leon’s work, including his musical and choreographic intent.  We will also discuss his impact on dance. With Dianne you will be able to discuss intricacies and nuances, with many opportunities to personally delve into Leon’s legacy.  Although it is sometimes difficult to determine where Leon’s work ends and Dianne’s begins, she is looking forward to thoroughly demonstrating this, and much more.

Dianne Walker’s world status is built on her impressive professional experience and fully developed artistic lens, including Broadway, film, TV, teaching at universities and an internationally recognized capacity to lead the global community.
