This spring from March to June Dancefusion will host Master Teacher, Jim May in two programs: Limón Dance Intensive and Anna Sokolow Workshop and Showcase. Classes will be open to all professional dancers and dancers trained at the advanced/intermediate and advanced levels of modern, jazz and/or ballet.
Humphrey/Limón Dance Intensive will train dancers in the techniques of Doris Humphrey and José Limón two of Modern dance’s greatest choreographers. Doris Humphrey was one of the first generation of pioneers to develop modern dance in America; her disciple was José Limón, who created some of the most significant modern dances of our times. Over a two-week period, dancers will receive a challenging, high-level 1.5 hour dance class with Master Teacher and Limón company member, Jim May. Dancers are encouraged to arrive early. Doors will be open 1/2 hour prior to class start time.
The Anna Sokolow Workshop will explore the technical style and philosophy of the legendary choreographer and true creator of “Dance Theater,” Anna Sokolow. For 9 weeks Mr. May will teach a two-hour workshop every Wednesday evening May 2 through June 27. This workshop will culminate in a Showcase performance on Saturday June 30th. All dancers must sign up for full 10-class program. Dancers registered for the workshop may perform in the Showcase.
Master Teacher Jim May is an authority on the Humphrey/ Limón technique, (he was a soloist with the Limón company and has taught for the Institute for decades). He is the leading expert on Sokolow for over 50 years (first as soloist, then assistant, and now director of Sokolow Theater Dance). Mr. May has been honored with a Bessie Award, the Marcus award for teaching, established Dance Forum Taipie, was awarded two Fulbrights (Mexico and Chile) and taught on the faculties of Juilliard, SUNY Purchase, and Princeton University. He continues to teach, perform, and lecture both National and International, just this last summer enjoying a 9 week residency at the National Academy of Rome which included a lecture at the American Institute sponsored by the American Embassy.
