Dance Modern Lab Master Class Series: Marly Spieser-Schneider

  1. Friday November 2 12:00pm
Dance Building, Betty Pease Studio Theater

SMTD Department of Dance Alumna Marley Spieser-Schneider is, among many things, a dance artist who currently teaches, choreographs, performs, and experiments in various locations, primarily Vermont, New York, and Michigan.  As usual, she is constantly embarking on a multitude of projects.  At the moment she is working on an evening length collaborative work with Avi Waring and Paul Besaw, a duet work with Trina Mannino, a solo show entitled Mantra.Math.Marrow, and a series of ongoing projects with various multi-media artists, including Ona Schneider and Jamie Killen.   In short, she seeks to connect with people and engage in collaborative processes that inspire creative problem solving and open-minded investigation.

Each Modern Lab session features a different guest artist teaching a master class and sections from their repertory. This panorama of the contemporary dance field is presented to broaden the students’ awareness of potential career possibilities. Each guest artist conducts a 30-minute technique class/warm-up and then teaches repertory that is performed by the class. In the final 15 minutes, faculty coordinator Bill De Young conducts a Q & A with each artist, discussing their career; their recommendations for transitioning from student to professional, and what they look for when they audition dancers for their projects.

This event supported in part by the EXCEL Lab.
