It's not often that practicing choreographers get a chance to workshop with of-the-moment pros. Harvard University dance students are currently creating their own works under the guidance of contemporary ballet choreographer Pontus Lidberg and Gallim Dance's theatrical Andrea Miller. While in Cambridge, the two will also create work for dancers in the department, to be performed at the Harvard Dance Program Spring Performance, March 28–30. Dance program director Jill Johnson will also set a work inspired by William Forsythe's choreographic and improvisation methods. (Read more on Johnson, who we featured in our September 2011 issue when she took over the department.)
