Events

As part of the Program in Dance’s fall 2019 co-curricular dance offerings, Adam Barruch leads a Contemporary Practices class on “dynamic sequencing.” The Contemporary Practices class series explores varied techniques and approaches to contemporary dance. With a curriculum of rotating guest teachers, the course challenges students to widen their understanding of contemporary dance through physical exploration.

The Program in Dance offers weekly, drop-in co-curricular courses where members of the University community can train with professionals. Classes are FREE and open to all Princeton University students, alumni, faculty, and staff. No prior dance or movement experience needed.

No advance registration required; participants will be asked to sign in and show Princeton University ID. Participants may leave class early if needed.

These classes are not open to the general public.
