With an emphasis on center-driven movement, nuanced weight transfer, breath phrasing, intention, focus and performance, this class will expand the dancers’ technical, dramatic and artistic range. Dorfman believes artistry is built on specificity and detail. In addition, Dorfman’s classes explore the essence of solo and ensemble performance; the individual existing in relation.

Other Dance Union events include an Open House/Rehearsal with the company and a multi-company performance.

This arts program is made possible in part by a HEART (History, Education, Arts Reaching Thousands) Grant from the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders. Dance Union is also supported, in part, by the Union County Performing Arts Center and Rahway Dance Theatre.
