DREAM Master Class with Matthew Rushing

On Monday, February 5, our DREAM students participated in a master class taught by Matthew Rushing of The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. Matthew Rushing has been a member of the company since 1992 and serves as Rehearsal Director and esteemed Guest Artist. Rushing's two hour master class challenged students to find how their breath supports their movement and to develop an organic relationship between movement and music. Rushing was impressed with the group's laser focus and their ability to respond quickly to various movement directions during class.

DREAM is so excited to see Rushing in action in The Kennedy Center’s presentation of The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater this Saturday, February 10.
