Introduction to Modern Dance
With Victoria Finlayson
A New Course: Four Saturdays
January 4, 11, 18, 25 11:45-1:15pm
Introduction to Modern Dance will introduce students to the fundamentals of Cunningham technique, developed by Merce Cunningham to train his dancers. Cunningham, a 20th century Modern Master, made dances that demanded speed, strong leg work, and flexible and challenging backwork. Former Cunningham dancer Victoria Finlayson will guide students in strengthening their bodies and expanding their range of movement, rhythmic flexibility and somatic musicality.

CUNNINGHAM TECHNIQUE CLASS with VICKI FINLAYSON
FRIDAYS 4:30-6:00 p.m.
This class is geared towards students who are at an intermediate level or higher in either ballet or modern technique. Students will explore the training that Merce Cunningham developed to promote the range of articulation of the dancer’s body and somatic imagination. Students will learn combinations that will be woven together to build a dance that will coexist with the music but not be dependent on it.
