From Body to Body: Duke Students Learn From a Dance Legend

Duke dance students received a special opportunity to learn from professional dancer Shayla-Vie Jenkins, who is a former dancer with Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company. Jenkins re-staged Bill T. Jones’ Power/Full for the Modern Dance Repertory Course, taught a Master Class, and spent time with students who wanted to know more about the life of a professional dancer.

The residency culminates with a public performance of the Duke Dance Program’s restaging of Power/Full during its annual November Dances concert, Nov. 18-19. The concert will include original works by Duke faculty and advanced student choreographers.
