DANA MOORE: THE GENUINE ARTICLE.
One of our all-time favorite GIG Guest Artists, Dana Moore, was recently featured in Dance Teacher Magazine! In the article entitled, "Dana Moore: Technique", Dana explains why practicing isolations is key to matering any kind of movement --
"In addition to Bob Fosse, she's worked with choreographers Tommy Tune, Michael Bennett, and Twyla Tharp. Still, it's Fosse whom she identified as her biggest influence, and she feels a responsibility to pass his legacy to students.
'I worked intimately with him and Gwen [Verdon] in rehearsals, and I feel confident that I'm the genuine article," she says. "I can pass it on with as much authenticity as I know, and be true to what I understand is the intention of his movement.'"
She can and she does. She's completely amazing.
