Professional Class: Michael Clark Company
Melissa Hetherington, long-term dancer with Michael Clark Company, will teach a technique class that trains the body to work efficiently in order to sustain the movement demanded by Michael Clark's choreography. The class will focus on the stability, co-ordination and articulation needed to dance with clarity through challenging material, and elements of Clark's choreography will be included.
