MASTER CLASSES / WORKSHOPS

 

WORKSHOP - Partnering

This workshop explores the basic skills of partnering through use of momentum, counter balance, trust, weight sharing, and lifts. It encourages participants to investigate their individual creativity, and in collaboration with a partner to make movement phrases which will be shared with the class. 

WORKSHOP - Ballet, Modern

Classic and modern technique are brought together in this class. We use the TheraBand to strengthen core, improve balance, and increase endurance, and improve understanding of body alignment.

“Working with Hee Ra Yoo during the festival, the process was organic, intelligent and exhilarating. Hee Ra Yoo approaches choreography with a specific voice she has developed during her career. Invention, originality and current are the descriptions of her process that immediately come to mind. Collaboration was easy, patient and visionary. We both grew from this remarkable experience and look forward to a repeat effort in our near future."

—Deborah Choi, Choreographer and Dance Educator, June 17-24 2017

 

“Our students responded extremely positively to her classes: beginning students found that they had improved dramatically between the two sessions and advanced students found themselves changed to rethinking their use of "standing" and "working" legs both at the barre and in the center. Hee Ra approached both classes with the same rigorous intent, challenging students both with extensive prior experience and with very little.”

—Interim Chair Olivia Sabee, Swarthmore College Department of Music and Dance, 'Feb. and March 2016
