BILL T. JONES/ARNIE ZANE DANCE COMPANY PERFORMS AT ASU GAMMAGE ON SATURDAY, APRIL 20TH AT 7:00PM (PRE-SHOW BEGINS AT 6:00PM). Arizona Dance Coalition (ADC) Members can save $10 on regular priced $35 ticket (ADC Members pay $25).

Class Description:
Geared towards strong pre-professional and professional dancers, this technique class will be based on the style and movement sensibility developed by Bill T. Jones and Janet Wong. We will cultivate precision, range, and the ability to cover space in movement, integrating and borrowing values from modern, postmodern, and classical traditions. We’ll also focus on remaining a thinking, feeling human being that makes choices with genuine consequences throughout the process of moving. Full bodied and challenging physicality will be the point of departure for our time together.
