Presented By: Office for the Arts (OFA) Dance Program, Master Class Series
Andrea Miller, artistic director and choreographer of the New York-based company Gallim Dance, will lead a contemporary dance master class inspired by Gallim’s collective discoveries in physical therapy, traditional movement techniques, Gaga, Gyrotonics, and Miller’s choreographic works. The class will develop students' technical growth through a sensitive and imaginative conversation between the muscular, nervous, skeletal, and cognitive systems.
Gallim Dance will be performing at the Institute of Contemporary Art Boston, presented by World Music/CRASHarts, on February 10 and 11, 2017.
This class is for intermediate to advanced dancers age 18 and over.
Participation is free, but due to limited class capacity, online registration is required. First-come, first-served, with priority given to Harvard University Undergraduate Students.
