Join Word Dance Theater in the last week of August for a summer send-off intensive in the technique and philosophy of Isadora Duncan. Throughout the week, students will explore the myths, deities, and queens of ancient Egypt through guided improvisation studies inspired by the art and artifacts of the great kingdoms. The week will conclude with a group field trip to the National Geographic Museum’s Queens of Egypt exhibition where dancers will experience their inspirations first hand, and perhaps we may dance among the queens themselves. Daily classes will deepen each student’s individual study of Duncan dance and the natural forms of creative expression. Additional details of guest artists will be announced by July 1.
