Event Attributes

Geared toward strong pre-professional and professional dancers, this technique class will be based on the style and movement sensibility developed by Bill T. Jones and Janet Wong. We will cultivate precision, range and the ability to cover space in movement, integrating and borrowing values from modern, postmodern and classical traditions. We’ll also focus on remaining a thinking, feeling human being who makes choices with genuine consequences throughout the process of moving. Full-bodied and challenging physicality will be the point of departure for our time together.

Jennifer Nugent is originally from Miami, Florida. She was a member of David Dorfman Dance and has performed with Martha Clarke, Daniel Lepkoff, Lisa Race, Nina Winthrop, Kate Weare, Bill Young, Colleen Thomas, Gerri Houlihan and Dale Andre. She has been a guest artist at universities and dance festivals throughout the U.S., Russia, Korea and Vietnam. Nugent joined the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company in 2009.
