Event description
The Katherine Dunham technique

About this Event

A combination of Cuban, Modern & Caribbean (Haitian) dance. Katherine Dunham was a rebel among rebels. Unlike other modern dance creators who eschewed classical ballet, Dunham embraced it as a foundation for her technique. But what set her work even further apart from Martha Graham and José Limón was her fusion of that foundation with Afro-Caribbean styles. This created an entirely original technique characterized by classical lines, a torso capable of both isolations and undulations, and utilization of a wider range of tempos and rhythmical styles than most other Western concert dance forms of the time.
