Bard Dance Presents a Talk with Tony Award–Winning Choreographer Bill T. Jones on November 30
“Bill is one of the most intellectually engaging and articulate voices in modern dance. We are so pleased to provide Bard and the surrounding communities with an opportunity to participate in what will surely be a thought-provoking discussion,” says Maria Simpson, professor of dance and director of the dance program at Bard.
Beginning in fall 2009, the dance program at Bard College has partnered with the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company to offer new classes in dance technique and choreographic methods, as well as special campuswide forums and workshops, such as this event. Courses are taught by current and former members of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company under the direction of Leah Cox, the company’s education director. This innovative partnership offers Bard students the unique opportunity to work closely with a world-renowned professional company during their undergraduate course of study.
Mr. Jones’s presentation is part of a day of dance events on campus that includes students in Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company courses showing their course work around campus throughout the day, and an open workshop for Bard students with no dance experience to try contemporary movement concepts.
