Dance Spotlight presents the final documentation of the Lester Horton modern dance technique. This innovative technique is a source of inspiration to countless modern dance choreographers and continues to train strong, versatile dancers, expanding the body's traditional range of motion. Lester Horton, the creator of the technique, developed a training method that explores the many ways the body can move. Marjorie B. Perces, former Horton dancer and teacher, and Ana Marie Forsythe, chair of the Horton department at the Ailey School, lead a group of professional dancers through fortifications, balance, hinge, and more advanced studies in this program.
