Presented By: Office for the Arts (OFA) Dance Program, Master Class Series
Tina Fehlandt will lead a modern and contemporary dance master class influenced by her long study of ballet, various contemporary techniques (such as Limón, Cunningham, and Simonson), as well as her many years dancing the highly musical and rhythmically challenging choreography of Mark Morris. The class will begin with a thorough warm up that enhances placement and increases efficiency of movement. The center work, starting with an “adagio” and continuing into moving and jumping combinations, will explore dancing to different tempos and styles of music and incorporate phrases from classic Mark Morris repertory.
This class is for intermediate to advanced dancers age 18 and over. Observers welcome!
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.
