Dance Master Class Repertory Series: Cat Coury

Friday, October 6, 2017

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


Catherine Coury is a native of Detroit and a graduate of SMTD, Coury’s dance career consisted of extensive international touring with New York City’s Shen Wei Dance Arts, Shannon Gillen, Gallim Dance, and LoudHoundMovement. Coury will teach gaga for warm-up and then Marcat Rep from her new piece Codara and Preludio.

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.
