At Home Volume 5 - Digital product (stream and download)
Volume 5 of our best-selling Dance for PD® At Home series features an exhilarating new movement experience from the Mark Morris Dance Group's acclaimed, research-backed Dance for PD program.
This set of dances draws upon the styles and traditions of jazz, tap, modern and the African diaspora - as well as Mark Morris repertory - to deliver a rigorous, stimulating and energetic experience. The video is designed for those who are ready to build on skills developed in earlier volumes or through our live classes. This volume mirrors our class format - it starts with a seated warmup and progresses to standing activities - but is designed for all levels and balances accessibility and rigor.
Pat Hall, Misty Owens and David Leventhal, Dance for PD master teachers who lead classes throughout Dance for PD's flagship network in New York City and around the world, incorporate dynamic, expressive movement.
Original music by Richard X Bennett, performed by multiple instrumentalists, provides a riveting soundtrack that will make you want to enjoy the video again and again. Filmmaker David Bee's ever-sensitive, insightful direction and editing create a sense of engaging flow that delights the eye.
This video features:
A specially-designed class that provides seated and standing activities as part of a progressive warmup
Creative and stimulating dance combinations
Moves based on dances from the African diaspora, tap, jazz, modern dance, ballet and improvisation
Phrases from choreographer Mark Morris' beloved repertory, including L'Allegro and The Argument
