Last Thursday, we had a short, informal performance with the Department of Theatre, Drama, and Contemporary Dance that included our Twyla Tharp class!
Month: October 2017
Twyla Tharp revolutionized the world of dance, and now, Indiana University students are learning the works and techniques that made her a legend.
Having to retrograde, invert, canon, and do phrase number 8 to the left—on the spot—was a really fun challenge.
Part of the magic of this class is the opportunity for hands-on learning and creative problem solving. In our last meeting, we were asked to provide variation on different phrases without guidance.
Last Thursday, we began learning the tap phrase of the Torelli. This sequence was definitely more movement-based rather than poses but still different than the type of choreography I am used to learning.
