As a part of its residency with the American Dance Legacy Initiative (ADLI), the Carthage Theatre Department will host a special, free master class with ADLI master teacher and repertory company member Kerry Gallagher.

The master class will introduce students to this year’s featured choreographer, Robert Battle, through movement principles, motifs, and other themes present in his work. The class will be rooted in the early Modern technique lineages of Martha Graham and Paul Taylor as well as other influences utilized to create the unique works of the Battleworks Dance Company. Class exercises will reflect these styles and may also feature repertory threads from the Battle Etude, which will be presented in the Theatre Department’s dance production, Kinesthetic Chitchat, Nov. 15 - 17.

This class is recommended for students who have some previous dance experience.  To register for this class, please complete the Google form.
