Horton Technique – Workshop
Ages 16 & Up. Horton's dance technique, which is known as Horton Technique, has no style, per se, as does Martha Graham. However, the technique emphasizes a whole body, anatomical (relating to body structure/anatomy) approach to dance that includes flexibility, strength, coordination and body and spatial awareness to enable complete freedom and unrestricted movement and expression. This 3-DAY WORKSHOP will serve as a basic introduction for beginners and review for intermediate danceers.
