On Broadway - Eifman Academy dancers/Russia January 24, 2016 | BobBoross | More on Performance
I was a guest teacher in January 2016 at the Boris Eifman Dance Academy in…Petersburg, Russia. The dancers there study ballet, gymnastics, contemporary, and ballroom, but no jazz dance. In just 8 hours of rehearsal I was able to set this theatre jazz dance piece on dancers ages 12-14. This was a great example of cultural interaction and community building through sharing American jazz dance.Read More
