Dance Master Class Repertory Series: Sean Hoskins

Friday, November 3, 2017

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


MFA alumnus Sean Hoskins guides people through the compositional process he developed/used to come up with much of his materials: "Dancing the Place." Hoskins will also emphasize choice- making and agency as a performer, improviser, dance maker, etc. Phrase material will be taught from the multimedia work that he is choreographing at EMU this Fall.

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.
