Take a Virtual Master Class With Dance Magazine “25 to Watch” Pick Adriana Pierce
Join our friends at Dance Magazine for a master class with one of our 2022 “25 to Watch” picks, Adriana Pierce, on Friday, April 8. The dancer and choreographer has a career spanning ballet, Broadway and Hollywood that “looks like a jack-of-all-trades, master of many laundry list of dream gigs,” as writer Lauren Wingenroth put it in our feature. Now, as founder of #QueerTheBallet, she’s advocating to get more queer stories onstage—a priority that’s reflected in her own choreography.
In this Dance Media Live! event, Pierce will teach an excerpt from her ballet Animals & Angels, which was originally produced as a dance film by The Joyce Theater last June and is being performed during #QueerTheBallet’s appearance at Chelsea Factory April 5–6. The last 10 minutes of the hourlong session will be devoted to a Q&A.
Class is $25, and will take place on Zoom Friday, April 8, at 4 pm Eastern. Register here to join us.
