About the class:
This intermediate contemporary/modern dance class focuses on the development of versatile technique: it builds the bodily skills of strength, flexibility and coordination while offering the dancer an opportunity to move with artistry and expressivity.

About the teacher:
Alice Howes is a dance artist and educator who is director of Trajectory Dance Project, a Baltimore-based modern dance ensemble. She has been on faculty at Montgomery College and The Washington Ballet at THEARC. She has held full-time faculty positions at universities including Coppin State University, UNC Charlotte, and Lamar University. In addition, she served from 1995 to 2004 as artistic director and resident choreographer of Washington, D.C.’s Sister’s Trousers Dance Company, a modern dance ensemble based in the D.C. area. Sarah Kaufman of The Washington Post described Howes’ performance as “riveting, thrilling and deeply mysterious”. Howes’ choreography has appeared in selective showcases at venues such as D.C.’s Dance Place, The Booth Theater in Charlotte, North Carolina and the Kennedy Center’s Terrace Theater and Millennium Stage. She holds an MA in dance from American University and an MFA in dance from Sam Houston State University. Howes also has earned a Certificate of Movement Analysis (CMA) from the Laban Institute of Movement Studies in New York City.
