Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company
Beginning in Fall 2009, the Bard Dance Program embarked on a partnership with the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company to offer new classes in technique, creative structure, and critical analysis. Since BTJ/AZ’s merger with Dance Theater Workshop, renamed New York Live Arts, the partnership has expanded considerably. Regular offerings include technique (two levels, offered four days a week), repertory, composition, junior seminar in professional practice, and senior project oversight and advising.
