Advanced Level Master Class with Jon Lehrer: Metropolitan School of the Arts
May 1, 2016 @ 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM$25
In May 1997, Jon was hired into Giordano Jazz Dance Chicago, the world’s premiere jazz dance company. After three years, he was promoted to Rehearsal Director and then given the position of Associate Director two years later. LehrerDance, founded in 2007, is an exciting and innovative professional dance company based in Buffalo, NY. Jon’s extensive background in both the modern and jazz dance idioms fosters choreography that is organic, artistic, accessible and often humorous, reflecting life experience and the human condition.
About his choreography:
The LehrerDance style is based on three main elements of movement: Circularity, 3-Dimensionality, and Momentum. These combine to create a form that is best described as “Organically Athletic”, integrating the approach and fluidity of modern dance with the excitement and energy of jazz dance to create an expressive, engrossing style of movement.
