For the Fall 2021 term, we're offering a mix of virtual and in-person classes. Although we are still primarily virtual, you will find a smaller selection of in-person seminars in the schedule. For more information about the Newberry’s virtual seminars, including a Zoom tutorial, please see our Virtual Seminars FAQ page. Registration opens on September 1st at 9am (Central time). Registration will take place through our online platform, Learning Stream.
Please note: classes that are currently scheduled to take place in the building may switch to virtual in accordance with public health and safety guidelines. Additionally, masks are required for all attendees, regardless of vaccination status. We will email participants with any changes the week before seminars begin.
Students will take a historical trip through time to learn about the important contributions of choreographers and dance companies in our cultural city. We'll study, understand, and appreciate the work of Ruth Page, Nana Shineflug, Joel Hall, Homer Bryant, Lou Conte and his world known Hubbard Street Dance Chicago. This seminar will also relate to the Chicago Avant Garde: Five Women Before Their Time exhibition in the Newberry.
Six sessions. Registration – $210
