DanceMasters Weekend, celebrating its eighth year, has become one of the most anticipated annual dance events in the Northeast. It is an extraordinary opportunity for students of dance to experience the widest range of contemporary dance techniques by taking classes with master teachers from premiere dance companies over an intensive two-day period. The weekend also features a showcase performance where students and dance enthusiasts can see these masters perform.
We invite you to feel the power of contemporary dance by taking a class or by attending the showcase performance which, year after year, brings audiences to their feet!
– Mariam McGlone, Artistic Coordinator
Classes are designed for students with intermediate to advanced dance experience. Master teachers will incorporate technique and movement combinations from their repertoire.
