Technical classes in Montreal this spring
The good weather will bring Marc Boivin back to the city, where he will give two series of technical classes, the last of the season.
Combining the Limón technique with principles of ballet, these workshops are designed to establish a balance between strength and freely released weight of momentum, between clarity of impulse within and the outward relationship to space, through form and focus.
