For ballet teachers, dance professionals, and dance lovers
Once again, Peabody Dance will demonstrate and discuss important dance topics and examine persistent questions in teaching the art of beautiful movement. The day is offered not only to ballet teachers at all levels of experience, but also to professional dancers, artistic directors, ballet masters, college dance instructors and dance majors, dance writers and critics, and others whose involvement in dance runs deep.
This full-day event, led by Peabody Dance’s Artistic Advisor Barbara Weisberger and Anna-Marie Rabassi-Davis, consists of two elements: the morning of Master Class observation and the afternoon Demonstration-Discussions. Rafael Grigorian, master teacher; Norma Pera, Baltimore School for the Arts’ Dance Department Head; and other outstanding dance and music professionals will lead the Demonstration-Discussions.
The afternoon sessions will focus on classical ballet and other theatrical dance forms as visual music, and will explore the ways in which musicality is essential to dance and how it influences technique. The seminar’s success truly depends on the active participation of all who attend. Come and be prepared not only to observe, but to comment, question, and share your insights!
