Modern Technique Masterclass
Tuesday July 30th, 2019
Lauren Beirne’s physical work is rooted in momentum, weight, transition and breath. Her class is a combination of clean, classical techniques, improvisation, theatricality and fast paced floor work. As a choreographer, she seeks authenticity and humanity in performance, highlighting the unique qualities each dancer can bring to the movement.
