Dance Master Class Repertory Series: Laura Pettibone and Catherine Tharin

Friday, October 13, 2017

12:10pm, Dance Building, Betty Pease Studio Theater


Laura Pettibone Wright and Catherine Tharin were in Erick Hawkins Dance Company and will be teaching Hawkins Rep. Tharin was a soloist in the Erick Hawkins Dance Company from 1988–1994, where she originated roles, toured nationally and internationally, and danced at the Kennedy Center.

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.
