In this afternoon workshop taught by choreographer Phoebe Berglund, learn about and experience a range of American dance techniques that were pioneered by artists during the 1960s. Drawing inspiration from dance performances and other works on view in the exhibition New York: 1962-1964, this class will provide deeper exploration of movement practices from this time period. Focusing on authentic movement as well as graphic and written dance scores, participants will create their own scores along with original drawings and writing.

Open to all skill levels; no dance experience required. Note that comfortable shoes and clothing are recommended. Masks will be required during the workshop. For up-to-date protocols and guidelines, you may check our visitor policies page.
