Hubbard Street presents a 90-minute master class led by Season 44 choreographer and award-winning artist Jermaine Spivey. Join us online or in person!
Through reorientation with essential motor functions—flexing, extending, opposing, rotating, swinging, shifting weight, falling—dancers will work toward increasing their capacity for observing what is happening and shaping responses to the motivations leading the physical body in space.
Advance registration is required. This class will take place with a limited number of spots available in person and unlimited spaces online via Zoom. Participants in the studio must wear a mask, be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and present proof of vaccination upon arrival.
