The Doris Humphrey Summer Intensive 2010

MOMENTA and the Doris Humphrey Society are proud to announce a special technique and repertory workshop focused on Modern Dance Pioneer, Doris Humphrey. The workshop will be directed and taught by Gail Corbin (Humphrey Technique and Repertory), with special guest teacher, Deborah Carr (Humphrey-Weidman Technique and Repertory).

The workshop will be from August 2 through 7, 2010, at the Academy of Movement and Music in Oak Park:

TECHNIQUE class will explore the foundation of Humphrey’s technique of Fall and Recovery, and will work on exercises to develop breath, successional movement, and suspension.

REPERTORY will include learning a number of studies that illustrate the principles of the technique and will also include sections of repertory representing works by Doris Humphrey, Charles Weidman, and Ernestine Stodelle.

PEDAGOGY:  Students will take the principles of Humphrey/Weidman technique in detail, and through their own studies, will translate them into a classroom setting for a variety of ages and levels.

There will be an INFORMAL PERFORMANCE on Saturday, August 7 at 7:30PM.
