Video Session

I wanted to give the girls a bit more of a context for the work we have been doing in our lessons so I decided to use one of our sessions to explain a bit more about the history of contemporary dance and show them the work of some influential choreographers, past and present.

Below are a list of links to the videos we watched as well as the names of the choreographers we chatted about.
