About 2014 Horton Teacher Workshop
Session 1 - July 7-11: Introductory/Beginner
Session 2 - July 14-18: Session 2: Intermediate/Advanced
Led by master teacher and scholar of the Horton vocabulary, Ana Marie Forsythe, The Horton Teacher Workshop provides invaluable insight to dance teachers, dance scholars, and professional dancers into the classic American modern dance technique. Through an all-inclusive review of Horton vocabulary and studies, participants learn how to train students to use proper body alignment, to improve strength, coordination, and flexibility, and to adapt these principles to all styles of dance.
Each session features lectures, demonstrations, and “hands on” approaches for teaching all levels. Participants will have the opportunity to observe or participate in Horton classes at The Ailey School, the official school of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, as well as meet with other Horton teachers from around the world.
Some knowledge of the Horton Technique is preferred and participants must have three years of teaching experience. Session II is for teachers who have participated in a minimum of one previous pedagogy workshop with Ms. Forsythe.
Ms. Forsythe, Chair of the Horton Department at The Ailey School since 1979, is co-author of “The Dance Technique of Lester Horton” and the artist director of five Horton technique videos.
