Thinking on their feet

Student choreographers rise to the challenge

“Creating and expressing movement is a way to articulate feelings,” says Melissa St. Clair, Portland Festival Ballet’s Improvisation teacher. In recent weeks she has been a sounding board and mentor for our advanced dancers as she directs the annual student choreography showcase, this year called Movement Playground.

The performances – 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. on Sunday, March 8 at the studio – will be the first time most of these dancers (level 4 and up) have choreographed works on their own. Ms. St. Clair aims to create a “safe” space for the dancers, where they can “experiment with what’s inside of them that yearns to get out.” Read more here.
