As part of the OFA Dance Program's Spring 2016 Master Class Series, Peter DiMuro will lead a master class focusing on jump-starting the creative/choreographic process. Mr. DiMuro pulls from a variety of sources in his movement classes, adapting modern and somatic techniques along with improvisation structures based in both theatre and dance. In this master class, participants will create their own movement phrases and explore serious play.
