Dance for Twyla No Experience Necessary

May 19, 2015

If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand—and feet, legs, arms and most importantly brain—at Twyla Tharp’s mind-boggling choreography, now is your chance. Next month, Tharp’s 1970 work The One Hundreds will be restaged at Manhattan’s Rockefeller Park as part of the River to River Festival. The best part? They’re looking for 100 dancers to perform the piece.


Never taken a Tharp class before? No problem. You can even invite your non-dancer friends since no prior movement experience is required. Check out this archival video from Jacob’s Pillow Dance Interactive of The One Hundreds in which Tharp leads a pack of 99 dancers through innumerable gestures. Then, register here. Participation is first come, first served, and you must be available Sunday, June 20, for a mandatory rehearsal from 12–5 pm before the 7 pm performance.
