    Master classes & Meet-the-Artists Reception at Mukogawa Women’s University, Takarazuka

    BDC members all attended an afternoon workshop for over 100 high school and college-age dance students from Kansai area institutions including Tenhy University in Nara, Ashiya Performing Arts Academy and Mukogawa University in Takarazuka.

    To commence, Jonathan Hollander gave introductory commentary and presented all members of the company.

    Sean Scantlebury taught a hip- hop master classes for over 50 students who picked up the material proficiently and enthusiastically. The atmosphere was fun and the students were extremely cooperative and friendly.

    Jeanene Winston and Lydia Tetzlaff gave two successive master classes in modern dance. The students ranged from intermediate to advanced levels and followed the teachers’ instructions with relative ease.

    A small reception was held afterwards and gifts were presented to each of the BDC members
