Tue Aug 15 22:21:59 EDT 2017
Open Ballet Class with Megan Flynn, Artistic Director of MFDC, will have a
very special guest accompanist -- Paul Fejko!
Thursday 8/17, 6:00-7:30.
Megan Flynn specializes in teaching intermediate-advanced level ballet
technique for professional contemporary dancers. Her somatic approach
encourages students to connect with their breath, pelvic floor and core
support while performing complex sequences that emphasize musicality and
spatial awareness. Starting with barre work, and continuing through center
practice with adagio, pirouettes, petit and grand allegros, dancers will
develop greater awareness of their dynamic alignment in order to maximize
physical expression, and discover greater ease in movement. Big, bold,
luscious dancing, from the inside-out.
Paul Fejko is a graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music and went on to
achieve international renown as a composer/conductor and performer. He has
worked with Maurice Bejart's Ballet of the Twentieth Century in Brussels,
Belgium and was Music Director of the Ballet of Lyon in France. He is a
musician for the Muhlenberg College department of Theatre & Dance, and is
the Music Director of Gloria Dei. He works with various theater and dance
groups in Philadelphia and New York City and has regular concert tours in
Luxembourg, France and Belgium. To these he adds running a small
performance space in Chester, PA known as The André Café Acoustique (
www.andre-cafe.com), and is founder of the Chester Performing Arts Project.
