Contemporary Dance Theater is devoted to bringing our nationally and internationally-renowned Guest Artists into the community. That’s why one of our favorite programs is a series of open masterclasses with these amazing guest artists. Local dancers are invited to take class with the talented and innovative artists we bring to the Aronoff Center.

Next Up:  Area Choreographers Festival

Contemporary Dance Theater will present Area Choreographers Festival, June 7 & 8 2019, at 8pm, at the Aronoff Center for the Arts.  ACF choreographers and performing artists Corrinne Bailey & Jon Lawson will co-teach an open community master class at the CDT studios in College Hill on Saturday, June 8, at 10:30am-12:00pm.  Read more about Area Choreographers Festival and the Guest Artist Series here.

Class description:  Corrinne Bailey and Jon Lawson of Fellow Collective will teach a Modern Technique class that prepares dancers’ senses and challenges their endurance. Based on Release Technique, Corrinne and Jon will take movers through a series of exercises to push the body’s natural movement patterns and range of mobility. Class material will explore weight, momentum, suspension, and reaction.

This modern dance community master class is open to adults and mature teen dancers of intermediate & advanced levels, and advanced beginners who can follow along are also welcome.

Please register in advance by Thursday, June 6 and save money, here on our website, or at the front desk at CDT during class time in person or over the phone (513) 591-1222. For questions: dance@cdt-dance.org
