LCTC4 opportunities to take company class with LCTC!

Lorraine Chapman will be teaching 4 ballet classes as part of an open company class series this summer. Lorraine's ballet class is both traditional and contemporary, with a focus on vocabularic choreography. This is also an excellent chance to be seen by the director if you are interested in auditioning for the group.

  • 4 Mondays: June 19, June 26, July 3 & July 24
  • 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
  • The Dance Complex (6/19, 6/26 & 7/3 in Studio 1 and 7/24 in Studio 6)
  • Barre $10.00 / Class $15.00 (all payments payable to "The Dance Complex")

The intention of Lorraine's ballet class is to give clear, focused information while grounding the dancers in their technique. With equal professional training in both traditional ballet and modern modalities, she hopes to bring joy and passion for dance in all of its forms to every class. There is a choreographic sensibility to the work and she puts the emphasis on dancing, expression and the investigation of physicality. She works hard to create an atmosphere that allows the dancer to concentrate without tension and to develop ownership of the material, strength and stamina. Detailing is peppered throughout the class as well as individual, hands-on attention given to each student, to help them integrate concepts and ideas. The pacing of the barre engages the dancers both physically and mentally resulting in a thorough warm-up. Dancing with luminous energy and confidence in the center is encouraged as well as taking risks. Giving the dancers positive feedback is important to her, as she believes it helps them embrace a high level of challenge.

Lorraine Chapman danced with Eliot Feld Ballets/NY and Ballet British Columbia as well as for several Boston-based choreographers. Chapman has received several grants and has created works for numerous festivals and companies officially forming LCTC in 2002. Chapman’s awards include a BDA Rehearsal & Retreat Fellowship, a Brother Thomas Fellowship from The Boston Foundation, a BCA Dance Residency and a Summer Stages Dance/Baryshnikov Arts Center Residency as well as being featured in Dance Magazine as one of “25 To Watch”. She teaches at the Northeast School of Ballet’s Conservatory, Urbanity Dance, and the Ballet Arts Centre of Winchester.
