MMDG Master Class with Lauren Grant

Class will begin with a modern warm-up which will include a physical and rhythmic approach based on Mark Morris' work. Movement motifs and small phrases from Mark's canon will be incorporated into the warm-up. We will then learn various sections of one of his newest dances, Words, which will be performed at BAM April 22 and 24, 2015.
