Workshop description: The choreographer Maurice Causey will create a piece on the dancers during this 5 day workshop. Causey, who danced in classical companies and with William Forsythe before working as balletmaster of Netherlands Dance Theater from 2004-2010, is considered a new choreographic talent. He has recently been commissioned by both European and American companies to choreograph pieces. His own style combines elements of classical/neoclassical technique with clear composition and often a humorous touch.
