NEW Session begins March 27 (9 Weeks)
Rebecca's dance classes focus on developing technical, theatrical performers and build strong, musical and organic movers. They seek to develop a dance artist ’ s sensibility, creativity, precision, and strength using techniques from Ballet, Bill Evans/ Limon-based modern, Laban, Effort Shape as well as various Pilates and Zena Rommets floor work. Ballet or modern floor or center barre, classical and contemporary movement as well as new choreographic ideas will be part of every class. Attention to working with challenging rhythms in order to build strong musicality will be stressed.

Join choreographer Rebecca Rice Thursday mornings for a class that explores movement from both the ballet and classical modern idioms. Ballet barre will be standard as well as attention to movement that builds both virtuosity of technique and creative self-expression.
" Choreographer Rebecca Rice has forged a movement lexicon that fuses ballet and modern dance in a way that seems totally organic, comfortably familiar yet not routine. The foundation in traditional ballet is impeccably clear, yet her work is also just as grounded in the weighted earthiness and gestural richness of modern dance" Karen Campbell BOSTON GLOBE 2003
"Choreographer Rebecca Rice makes serious, intensely musical dances that are full of promise. Firmly rooted in classical ballet, her movement style exudes an earthiness and a sweep that recalls the ethos of modern-dance pioneers Ruth St. Denis and Ted Shawn, as well as that of Jose Limon, who came along in the 1940s." Thea Singer THE BOSTON GLOBE 2003
"Rebecca Rice's choreography resonates because it's organic..." Thea Singer BOSTON GLOBE 2003
