Humphrey-Limón workshop Betty Jones and Fritz Ludin

 

HUMPHREY- LIMÓN TECHNIQUE AND REPERTORY WORKSHOP
OCTOBER 9-13, 2012 – TUE-SAT 10-12pm

Based on the dynamic heritage of the Humphrey/Limón tradition, internationally renowned master teachers Betty Jones and Fritz Ludin transmit their own individual ways of dance. Having taught legions of dancers with ethnic and cultural diversities around the globe, their curiosity inspires participants to search for their own individual roots.

They conceive dance as poetry and an art form with Dionysian and Apollonian counterparts, where the sensation of weight versus suspension is being highlighted. Their mentor’s voices of the body, the experience of gravitational momentum, and breaching of barriers, will be an integral part of the workshop.
