Students will learn, by way of the Lester Horton Technique, the proper approach to build strength, agility and flexibility. The course will include the recognition and use of terminology and the ability to perform studies of the Horton Technique, a modern dance style used as the foundation for choreographers, dance companies and artists around the world (including the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater). We'll spend the first 20-30 minutes of class learning/practicing universal Horton warm...
Students will complete this intensive-style course with a heightened understanding of movement - from execution, alignment, musicality and presentation.
Students will be given 1-3 assignments over the course of the week, each taking no more than 20 minutes, to view choreographed dance online (via YouTube) as a reference and base for discussion.
Students will need an open space, approximately 8 FT. x 8 FT to move through the class. Students can be barefoot or take the option to wear black socks. Students are encouraged to stretch before class, but they will be guided through a full warm up at the start of each day.

6 hours 15 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Students will be utilizing and learning their own bodies as instruments. While confidence is a an inevitable side effect to learning dance it is natural for your student to feel uncomfortable when learning their own bodies capabilities and limitations in movement. I encourage parents to ask students what they learn in each class, if not "teach" them at home, encouraging them to feel more comfortable as they progress in the skin they're in. Students are encouraged to wear non revealing, form fitting clothing (dance attire, if available).
