Master Classes with Pascal Rioult are designed to explore the thrill of movement and are geared for students of all levels. They engage the mind, the imagination, and the body making for an inspiring dance experience. Beginning with the first series of warm up exercises, students steadily progress to the movement phrases that form the base of Pascal Rioult’s renowned choreography and are the foundation to his extraordinary dancers’ technique.
RIOULT was founded in 1994 and fast became an established name in modern dance with a reputation for creating and presenting the sensual, articulate, and exquisitely musical works of Pascal Rioult. Born into the American modern dance tradition, RIOULT is creating its own legacy of contemporary dance that speaks to the mind and heart. The company of ten dancers is a nonprofit organization based in New York City and presents an annual New York season, tours nationally and internationally and conducts community engagement activities in the tri-state area and while on tour.
