Edward Henkel's MovementTalks
92nd Street Y Harkness Dance Center presents former dancer and choreographer Edward Henkel as he explores with his guests the unique qualities of dance and how these qualities can act as catalysts for change.
This year’s discussions will explore the topics of dance and diplomacy, dance in prisons, beauty in ballet and the function of dance in opera. We will also look at dance improvisation and women’s strengths in the service of dance. I invite you to consider dance with the intention of purposely making connections between dance and the professional and private aspects of your life.
