Jacob’s Pillow | 358 George Carter Rd, Becket MA 01223

This interactive movement workshop explores the work and legacy of modern dance icon and pioneer Martha Graham. Considered revolutionary at the time, Graham’s invention of a new modern dance technique has endured for almost 100 years. Her impact on the field of dance was enormous and far-reaching. The Martha Graham Dance Company continues to preserve her legacy and has brought her work into the 21st century in new and innovative ways.

PLUS! As an added bonus, participants in this workshop will receive a 20% ticket discount to attend the matinee performance of the Martha Graham Dance Company.

Led by Dance Education Laboratory (DEL) Facilitators Ann Biddle and Felice Santorelli, participants will:
Explore different approaches to looking at a choreographer’s work
Engage in embodied, inquiry-based research that pulls from the Pillow’s rich digital resources
Participate in playful movement exploration and collaborative dance-making in a supportive and welcoming environment
Discover applications of workshop content to dance education
Develop strategies to bring embodied dance history into the dance classroom

DEL Mini-Workshops bring together a diverse and multi-generational group of dance educators and students from multiple teaching/learning environments. Learn more here. Open to dance educators and dancers of all levels, ages 16+.
