Seán Curran Summer Workshop

Jun 22, 2009 - Jul 3, 2009; Mon - Fri
Monday thru Friday: 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Séan Curran will be teaching a 2-week long workshop at Peridance Center. An Irish step dancer as a young boy from Boston, Massachusetts, Séan Curran was a lead dancer with the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company and an original member of the off-Broadway hit Stomp. As a graduate and guest faculty of NYU, his dances have been seen at the New York City Opera, Broadway’s Playwright Horizons, Utah’s Ririe Woodbury Dance Theater, Sweden Skanes Dance Theater, Pittsburg Dance Alloy and several College/University’s pre-professional programs. From America to Europe Mr. Curran spans innumerable venues of dance art. A riveting performer, Mr. Curran explores aspects of movement that use gravitational pulls to expand dynamic ranges and awaken spatial relations between inner and outer focus. He brings these skills into his workshop to enrich the students' understanding of action, phrasing and timing.
