GUEST ARTISTS & FACULTY 4th Quarter 2021  

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and to keep everyone safe, Kanopy Dance’s 4th Quarter will be LIVE via ZOOM. We will move to Hybrid virtual / in person when we are able. All proper safety precautions will be met. Even during hybrid, students may continue to choose 100% virtual learning.

Join us dancing with world acclaimed guest artists from around the country – along-side Kanopy’s Artistic Directors and Faculty. Deepen your dance technique and artistry. Engage in creative activities. Learn, and learn about, these modern dance techniques, their different foundations toward the physical art of movement, their beginnings, and how artists create and find inspiration.

Whether you are a creative beginner, on a professional track, looking for a body-strengthening workout or wanting to experience the pure joy of dance, Kanopy has a dance class just for you. 

Students of all ages and levels will have the opportunity (throughout each quarter) to show their work in informal virtual performances for family and friends.

Kanopy2 and Kanopy Company dancers will be rehearsing Anna Sokolow’s signature work “Rooms”, a powerful dance about loneliness. As part of that project, Kanopy, and those from select companies and colleges nationally, will collaborate through the spring with the Sokolow Theatre Dance Ensemble NYC creating virtual performances, shared rehearsals and coaching, ultimately for a film production. In addition, dancers will rehearse and film an adaption of the “Ciaccona” from Kanopy’s co artistic director Lisa Thurrell’s “Partita & Chorales”. Kanopy’s directors Robert E Cleary and Lisa Thurrell will collaborate with videographer Mats Rudels in creating this work for film.

Be a part of Kanopy 2 : Kanopy 2 is our pre-professional performance and training program for ages 14-26. Dancers train in an intense vocabulary of classic modern forms and study with national luminaries shaping the future of modern contemporary dance. Kanopy 2 performs and presents original choreography in our season at the Overture Center. Numerous Kanopy 2 alumni have forged professional dance careers or earned success in other careers of their choosing. Online audition submissions accepted.
