If you are not a dancer, grab anybody you love who is one, and make them go to this class. If you are a dancer well, you probably know what this opportunity means!
I am not a dancer, I'm a teacher who is very interested in the arts, though totally untrained as a dancer. We happened to have Jeroboam Bozeman, lead dancer for Alvin Ailey, come to our second grade classroom last fall. He is a graduate of another school located in our school-building, and he was gracious enough to join our little journalists for an interview.
Just being interviewed, he is a show-stopper. He is full of light, and energy and positivity, and sincerity. So much of the latter that he makes you question that you ever questioned the kind of positivity of a motivational speaker.
More relevant to this post, he's an expert. Period. And how often is expertise accompanied by such an open and warm-hearted spirit? Not often enough, likely. That's why I'm stressing how important this opportunity is.
So, dancers 15-years and older, find your way to Mark Morris April 15 for a class by Mr. Bozeman and his Ailey-colleague Chalvar Monteiro. Register by emailing email@example.com
Here is how Jeroboam described the class to me:
The workshop is broken into two sections. The 1st section is a contemporary Horton based class. That explores modern movement with an infusion of African. It's target towards preprofessional and professionals. The ages range from 15 and up. The 2nd portion of the workshop entails an exploration of movement through improvisation, and phrase work. It focuses on cultivating ownership ofvocabulary provided. The entire class served as an exercise in auditioning and performing.
