Let our internationally recognized faculty take you through your paces and give you a treasure of resources, knowledge and contacts.
Where else in the United States can you learn the dances of Camargo and Cassanova from a Knight (Chevalier Catherine Turocy, decorated by the French Republic in 1995)...
“Nobody today seems more qualified to reconstruct the French dances of the 18th century than this American and her New York Baroque Dance Company.“ Le Figaro, Paris, France
Or learn dances from Richard Powers, dance historian for the Tony Award-winning musical, Titanic…
“With Richard Powers, you really are dancing with a star.” Alyssa Wisdom, The Stanford Daily
Why not learn early ballet from the dancer/author/historian Sandra Noll Hammond who wrote the book on basic ballet technique.
“Sandra Noll Hammond, after her work in NYC with American Ballet Theater, will be coming to our workshop to instruct students in the graces of early 19th century ballet…where else can you find open classes like this in the world?” Catherine Turocy, Director of NYBDC and the SBHDW
Discover the application of historical thought to contemporary creations with the emerging and talented choreographer, Sarah Edgar.
“The Tragedy of Echo & Narcissus” (Sarah Edgar) was packed with polarities, mixing touches of historical costuming, punk rock music, high-energy contact improv-style movement, and recitation of text, to evoke this ancient story.” Juliet Neidish from ballet-dance.com
Learn more about Baroque music and its close relationship to dance structures with Maestro James Richman of New York City’s Concert Royal Orchestra and the Dallas Bach Society (also decorated as a Chevalier).“…but personally I think that the present performance by James Richman and Concert Royal is at least the equal of any of them – and for some listeners it may even have the edge thanks to James Richman’s thorough preparation and outstanding direction…” Stephen Midgley
