Lydia Johnson Dance Repertory Workshop and Audition
Lydia Johnson Dance
Lydia Johnson Dance will hold a Repertory Workshop and Audition at Peridance Capezio Center this June 13-16, followed by a company audition on June 17.
Each day during this week-long Repertory Workshop, material from a different piece of the LJD repertory will be presented and explored. Ms. Johnson's vocabulary is ballet-based with modern, gestural and drop and release components. Ms. Johnson and Company dancers will emphasize individual interpretations of each combination and phrase with special focus on linking the movement to the music. LJD’s focus in performance is on the ability of each dancer to express the choreography with an individual, musically intelligent voice. Rather than working to attain a uniform quality, LJD dancers strive to bring their own personal vision into the phrases Ms Johnson choreographs. Works used in the workshop are set to composers Osvaldo Golijov, Marc Mellitts, JS Bach, Mozart and Brad Mehldau. A short warm-up will be included.
Following the Workshop, LJD will hold an audition for full company and apprentice positions. Attendance at the Workshop is recommended.
