  • Community Dance Class with Jon Lehrer 
    From 2:00pm to 5:00pm

    Erie Dance Series - Community Master Class. Master class with Jon Lehrer, founder/artistic director of Lehrer Dance open to all dancers, registration starts 15 minutes before each class.Dancers Ages 8 - 12, 2:00 - 3:15 Intermediate ~ $20 Registration. Intermediate level of jazz/modern training minimum of 3 years of training. Dancers Aged 13 + 3:30 - 5:00 Advanced ~ $25 Registration. Advance level of jazz/modern training over 3 years of training $10 ~ Observation Fee. Class Description: The Lehrer Dance technique revolves around the world of physics. We use the forces of physics to propel us through space, balance, turn, jump, and every other way we can move our bodies. The 4-main elements we focus on in Lehrer Dance are Circularity, 3- Dimensionality, Oppositional Force, and Momentum. These combine to create an exciting and engrossing style of movement that we call “Organic Athleticism”. The students will engage their entire physicality, combining elements of ballet, modern, and jazz to achieve a more efficient and engrossing way of movement and expression. The students will get a great physical workout and gain valuable insight into the art and athleticism of dance as well as how physics and dance are related. Learn Lehrer Dance repertoire and experience why Dance Magazine says, “Lehrer Dance is on the cusp of jazz/modern fusion".
