Maria Naidu, former soloist and Associate Director of Jennifer Muller’s The Works will work with Tees Valley Dance from 28th January – 7th February 2008. She will teach Muller technique class and offer a choreography workshop for the company and invited guests.
This is an exciting and rare opportunity to work with such a high profile, international artist. Only a few dance professionals have been authorised by Jennifer Muller to teach the technique.

The Muller technique is known to increase technical skill, encourage expression and prevent injury through the holistic use of the body as a living instrument.

Please register your interest if you are interested to join for class and/or the choreography workshop. Classes and workshop are open to professional dancer. There is a limited number of spaces available.

TEES VALLEY DANCE HOSTS A FIRST IN BRITAIN

Tees Valley Dance is hosting, as part of Arts Council England, North East’s Inspiring Internationalists Scheme, high profile contemporary dance artist, Maria Naidu, former soloist of New York company The Works.

Founded in 1974 by Jennifer Muller, The Works has achieved a dynamic global presence touring 37 countries on four continents. The company counts among its collaborators artists such as Yoko Ono, Keith Haring and Keith Jarrett.
Jennifer Muller’s choreographies have been commissioned by 23 international repertory companies.

Maria Naidu will be delivering master classes in Muller Technique and choreography sessions to Tees Valley Dance company members and professional dance artists at ARC, Stockton and Darlington Arts Centre. Dance students of Newcastle College’s Performance Academy and Northumbria University’s BA Dance programme will participate in special workshop programmes. “This will be the first time that Muller technique has been taught in Britain, so it is a real coo that it will be happening here in the Tees Valley.” said Kristine Sommerlade, Artistic Director of Tees Valley Dance.

For regional dancers this is an exciting and rare opportunity to experience the work of such a high profile, international artist. Only a few dance professionals have been authorised by Jennifer Muller to teach the technique. The Muller technique is known to increase technical skill, encourage expression and prevent injury through the holistic use of the body as a living instrument.

Tees Valley Dance will be holding an open sharing on Thursday 7th February at Newcastle Theatre Royal to give the interested public a chance to see the technique in action and meet Maria Naidu.
