Master Dance Classes Open to the Public at Plymouth State Oct. 2 & 3

October 2nd, 2010 by Adam


Plymouth, N.H.The Department of Music, Theatre, and Dance at Plymouth State University will present dance workshops October 2 and 3 as a part of the university-wide Homecoming and Family Celebration.

Jennifer Weber, artistic director of Decadancetheatre in Brooklyn, N.Y., will teach master classes to PSU students and members of the public at the Silver Center for the Arts dance studio. Participation is free for PSU students and $10 per class for nonstudents.

Weber has always been a student not just of dance technique, but of the larger cultural meanings of urban movement. As an artist, Weber seeks to explore hip-hop as the key emerging language of a global youth culture. Since founding Decadancetheatre in the Summer of 2000, Weber has choreographed four original, evening-length, hip-hop ballets: I Dance, Heroin(e), Behind the Beat, and Decadance vs. The Firebird-a Hip-Hop Ballet .

Plymouth State workshops include:

Saturday, October 2: 10–11:30 a.m., Deca Repertory; 11:45 a.m. –1:15 p.m. Hip-Hop Theatre

Sunday, October 3: 10–11:30 a.m. Commercial Hip-Hop; 11:45a.m.–1:15 p.m. Beginning Breakdance

Decadancetheater is an all-female hip-hop and b-girl (break dancing) troupe. The company tours nationally and can be seen performing on television, in commercials and in theaters.
