7th November 2018
Movement Migration Artist Director Kim Jones paid our second years a visit, and gave an inspiring talk to the next generation of dancers on her work with the dance company.
Movement Migration is a collective of seasoned dance artists collaborating to create and perform dynamic and poignant dance works that portray the depths of the human experience; the dances are shared with audiences locally and globally in performance and educational venues. The ensemble span four decades and combine traditions of classical ballet with modern dance.
Kim Jones is an Associate Professor of Dance at UNC Charlotte and a régisseur for the Martha Graham Resource Center. She danced with the Martha Graham Dance Company and the Metropolitan Opera Ballet and served as a principal dancer in the US National Tour of The King and I. She is currently Resident Director at Kingston University. You can read her full bio here.
Movement Migration highlights the potential for collaboration across a broad spectrum to make dynamic work, something our students were only too eager to learn about. The second and third years have regular visits from professionals and creatives in the industry and sessions include mentoring, choreography support, critical studies and guest lectures and #FreshFridays workshops. Fresh Fridays allows students to connect with a new approach or guest teacher from the contemporary and the ballet world each week and is a unique offering of the School.
