Swirling and Soaring in the Spirit of Luminaries • Kathy Harty Gray
we had an amazing time:
• Sharing the essence and spirit of modern dance legends Doris Humphrey, Charles Weidman and Jose Limon.
• Learning the vocabulary of movement developed in the 20th century to train dancers to portray humanistic emotions.
• Experiencing stage patterns for large ensemble movements that arc and twist and fill the stage with power and passion.
• Embracing the past and swirl and soar into the future with these special gifts.
