Contemporary with Jessie Jeanne Stinnett

Wednesday, January 6, 10:00 am - 11:15 am

Jessie, Founder/Co-Director of Boston Dance Theater, leads a contemporary technique class that is inspired by her artistic relationship of a decade with Dutch-Israeli choreographer Itzik Galili. Class begins with a deeply physical and rhythmic warm up leading into phrase work. This class is works well in intimate spaces and generates a lot of sweat!⁠

Jessie Jeanne Stinnett received a BFA in Dance Performance from The Boston Conservatory and an MFA in Creative Practice: Dance Professional Pathway from Trinity Laban Conservatoire, in conjunction with Independent Dance/Siobhan Davies Dance. She has performed for the Metropolitan Opera, Tate Britain, Prometheus Dance, Anna Myer and Dancers, Rebecca Rice, The Boston Baroque Opera, and Bard College’s SummerScape Festival. Jessie’s choreographic work has been described by Hannah Chanatry of WBUR as “conceptually driven performance that unpacks the complexities of being female, and pushes the academic boundaries of choreography.” Her work has been sustained in part by grants from The Boston Foundation with support from The Barr Foundation, New England Foundation for the Arts, and Fidelity Charitable.
