Modern Dance Master class with Matt Pardo
November 11, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am$5
NC Dance Festival artist Matt Pardo teaches an Intermediate/Advanced Modern Technique class.
This modern class will utilize a mixture of movement techniques and aesthetics. The class will begin with floor work and release combinations and will culminate in a larger combination at the end. All of the combinations will investigate the use of minimalist choreographic structures and score work so that students get an opportunity to experience this type of movement first-hand.
Matt Pardo has an M.F.A. from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, B.F.A. from the University at Buffalo, AEA. Experience includes Eisenhower Dance Ensemble, River North Chicago Dance Company (apprentice), Pittsburgh Opera, Groundworks Dance Theatre, world tour of the opera “Einstein on the Beach”, and Lucinda Childs Dance Company (Company Member/Company Class Instructor), among others. Dance Europe Magazine selected him as a “Top 100 dancer in the world” for 2010/2011. Pardo is a co-founder of the Pittsburgh-based organization called The Blanket (theblanket.org), a project that aims to expand the dance community in Pittsburgh. Recent choreographic and teaching credits include Point Park University, Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre School, Slippery Rock University, and Broadway Dance Center, among others. Pardo is an Assistant Professor of Dance at Elon University.
