Horton Technique at Danceworks
Beginner: Saturdays 2:30pm - 4pm
Improver: Tuesdays 6pm - 7pm (starting October 3rd)
Horton Technique was developed by the American modern dancer and choreographer, Lester Horton. It was one of the primary modern dance techniques used in Alvin Ailey’s choreography on the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre.
This class is an introduction to Lester Horton’s technique focused on building strength, dynamic movement quality and full body awareness. We work with a high energy touching on studies called Fortifications, that lengthen and strengthen different areas of the body as well as exercises that include flat backs, lateral stretches, leg swings, deep lunges, and T positions. These are structured into longer combinations, that can incorporate turns and jumps, to challenge the dancers technique while highlighting musicality and dynamics.
