Patrick Frantz from Idyllwild Arts Academy was on campus for four days as an instructor and to stage Trois Esquisses. This is a continuation of the collaboration with IAA that was started over two years ago. What lovely neo-classical pas de deux based on classical technique. Three very different moods, three very different couples and three relationships. It is nice to see the stories develop – the simplicity that Patrick was so careful about maintaining – and the technical aspects grow.
