Mark Morris Dance Group
In 2016, a 3-part series featuring the Mark Morris Dance Group (MMDG) was filmed as a collaboration between The Arts Unit and the Sydney Opera House. MMDG dancers (teaching artists) ran sessions with student dancers from the NSW Public Schools Dance Ensembles, Northern Beaches Secondary College, Mackellar Girls Campus, Westfield Sports High School and the Learning Support Unit at James Busby High School.
This series provides insights into:
- contemporary training techniques used by MMDG
- creative movement exercises based on choreographic elements to use in the classroom
- training and creative movement generation for dance students with intellectual disability.
