Free Master Class with Jonah Bokaer on October 31

Join us at the Michael C. Carlos Dance Centre on Thursday, October 31 for a FREE Merce Cunningham technique master class from 10:00am to 11:30am!

Jonah Bokaer provides a 90-minute master class in the Merce Cunningham technique, custom-arranged specifically for the students who choose to enroll. The class focuses on a 25-minute warm-up, including stretching and strengthening of the dancer’s torso in a contemporary manner, followed by a 25-minute warm-up of the legs, including classical articulation in both inward and outward rotation. This is followed by 40 minutes of phrase work based on the choreography of Merce Cunningham with dance materials ranging between 1973 and 2009, including adagio, allegro, floor progressions, small jumps, and large jumps. The class is characterized as rigorous and athletic, yet with a focus on clarity and exactitude of articulation.
