Production Description

Seeking participants for Concert Dance Series, a seminar with contemporary dance master, Desmond Richardson, co-founder and co-artistic director of Complexions Contemporary Ballet. Personnel states: "In this exciting seminar, Desmond will teach repertory from Complexions Contemporary Ballet, provide insight into what he looks for when selecting dancers to join the company, and give hands-on instruction and individual feedback to all of the dancers in class. Desmond Richardson performed as a principle with Alvin Ailey Dance Theatre for seven years, as the title role in "Othello" for the American Ballet Theatre, in the original Broadway cast of “Fosse," for which he was nominated for a Tony Award, and is currently performing as a featured dancer in the Broadway hit “After Midnight." He has performed on TV, film, and in music videos for such artists as Michael Jackson, Prince, Aretha Franklin, and Madonna. His successful performance and artistic career is a prime example of how concert, theatre, and commercial dance are overlapping more than ever, and how beneficial it is to be training in all of these wonderful dance forms. Stage Door Connections is happy to be providing you with the perfect opportunity to continue working on your versatility as a dancer and to take a class from someone who is praised for his ability to cross-over into the theatre, concert, and commercial dance worlds. This is an amazing opportunity to take class from a true contemporary master, don’t miss out on this valuable learning experience!"
