THE DANCE TECHNIQUE OF LESTER HORTON - AN ADVANCED CLASS

Advanced Horton Class Clip



 







In this advanced Horton class, the award winning and Master Horton teacher Ana Marie Forsythe encourages a group of professional dancers to continually challenge themselves. You are able to witness the focus and commitment of these dancers taking and applying corrections, building and honing their already strong technical and artistic dancing. The exercises in this video are based on the book, The Dance Technique of Lester Horton, by Marjorie Perces, Ana Marie Forsythe and Cheryl Bell and the three Dance Spotlight videos: Lester Horton Technique The Warm-up, Intermediate and Advanced Levels. These sources contain in-depth analysis of the movements. This is the 3rd of a distinct series of DVDs which illustrate how to create a class based on the Horton technique with general and specific corrections for the selected movements.
