Movement Invention Project 2012

June 5, 2012

(continued from News@ NJDTE May/June 2012 Newsletter)

Dancers work with an extraordinary faculty of teachers, choreographers and mentors in a project that encourages risk-taking, creativity, and the development of improvisational skills in a supportive environment that prepares the dancer to work in collaboration with today’s choreographers.
