Italian choreographer Caterina Rago has created an initiative to bring American modern dance teachers to Italy. Each month, three teachers will travel to the Istituto Pio IX in Rome, where they will introduce Italian students to Graham, Limón and Horton techniques through weekend intensives. The faculty will rotate over the course of the one-year program. Selected teachers include Rago, Kenneth Topping and former Graham company principal Maurizio Nardi, former Limón company members Ryoko Kudo and Pablo Francisco Ruvalcaba, and Horton technique teachers Karen Gayle, Bradley Shelver and Kristina Berger.
