Dance Modern Lab Master Class Series: Matt Farmer

  1. Friday November 16 12:00pm
Dance Building, Betty Pease Studio Theater

SMTD alumnus Matt Farmer is currently the chair of the dance department at Hope College. He is also the co-artistic director of R.G. Dance Productions and the co-artistic director of H2 Dance Co.

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.
