Artists Collaborating Together (A.C.T.) and Manhattan Movement & Arts Center present A Master Class and Conversation with Joanne Hunter on Monday, September 12, 2011 from 4-6pm at the Manhattan Movement & Arts Center at 248 W. 60th Street, NYC (between Amsterdam and West End Avenues) in the Lincoln Center area. Tickets: $25 for students, $20 for professionals with union cards, $10 for observation only, or $10 for Conversation with Talk Back only.
Joanne Hunter, veteran Broadway performer and director/choreographer of the upcoming Broadway revival of On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, starring Harry Connick, Jr., will teach a masterclass and discuss her lengthy Broadway career and her leap from performer to director/choreographer. JoAnn’s many years in the industry both as an accomplished performer and choreographer have given her a deep understanding of the entertainment industry and the audition process. She has a wonderful way of communicating with dancers and is excited to share this information. Using choreography from her upcoming and past theater projects, she will provide valuable insights on how to improve audition techniques and on what today’s top choreographers look for when hiring dancers.
The workshop is presented by Manhattan Movement & Arts Center and Artists Collaborating Together, a grass roots movement in New York started by Erich McMillan-McCall to assist theatre professionals in attaining low cost training in music, dance, acting and fitness. He has partnered with like-minded professionals to offer excellent training in these disciplines. Collaboration is the key to navigating through this harsh economic climate. It is the mission of ACT to develop and support an environment where all can realize their full artistic potential.
