On Wednesday, November 6, Walker’s Dance Workshop and Dance Ensemble were joined by dancers from The Loomis Chaffee School, Taft School, Miss Porter’s School and Marianapolis Preparatory School for a day of master classes followed by a performance in Ferguson Theatre as part of the annual Elizabeth Olsen Marshall Dance concert. Dance Ensemble performed a dance called “12:00” and Dance Workshop performed a piece entitled “The Dollhouse.” Both of these dances were completely designed and choreographed by the students in their composition class this season.

The EO Marshall Dance Concert is held each year in honor of Ms. Marshall, the first head of dance at Walker’s and the founder of Dance Workshop. Walker’s dancers will travel to Choate Rosemary Hall in the spring for the New England Preparatory School Dance Festival (NEPSDF).
