Non-Credit Workshop

First session starts at 10am with a two-hour technique class. This will be followed by an orientation to the program, when you will be given a detailed schedule. After a lunch break, there will be two afternoon sessions, ending at 4:30pm.

The workshop is open to teachers and graduates of teaching programs. It is also open to dancers trained in the Humphrey/Limón tradition who are interested in learning to teach the technique. It is designed to guide each participant to find an individual approach to Limón-based teaching. The program's official website can be found here.

The anticipated day-to-day schedule is from 10am – 4:30pm: 

  • 10:00 – 12:00 Technique class
  • 12:00 – 12:45 Principles sessions
  • 12:45 – 1:30 Lunch and Journal break
  • 1:30 – 3:00 Afternoon workshop
  • 3:00 – 4:30 Afternoon workshop

Participants will be asked to select several evening classes at Peridance to observe (6:00 – 7:30pm). Class schedule is available here (details given at registration). Be prepared to keep a notebook and specific suggestions will also be given about how to observe.

This workshop will examine the use of Humphrey/Limón principles in contemporary dance training. The program will include daily technique classes, an exploration of the underlying principles, phrases from repertory (contemporary and classic) and the use of rhythm and music in Limón classes. Participants have opportunities to present class materials and contemporary dance phrases.

This workshop is open to experienced dance teachers and Limón-trained dancers. Participants will have opportunities to teach class work and phrase material. You should bring a notebook, but you will not be asked to do any writing that you would turn in to us; if you currently teach with recorded music, you might bring some favorite examples to share.
