Terpsichore in Winter
Dance and Music Unite
Muscians and dancers are working together during Intermester 2015 in a course, Creating Music for Dancers, led by Steve Larson and Wendy Masterson. This is an opportunity for the artists to work together in the classroom setting, combining their skills and expertise in support of ballet barre and center work. The dancers create specific exercises, teach it to the class, and dialogue with the musicians on quality and tempo. The musicians in turn create or find music to support the physical demands of the combinations. As with Terpsichore, the music and the movement meld together creating an environment of camaraderie and learning.
