Movement Without Borders brings the best and brightest in the dance world to PS21 to teach classes all summer long.
Wendy Whelan, widely considered one of the world’s leading dancers, will be at PS21 to lead a Movement Without Borders class as part of this ongoing series of novel experiments in motion and sensation dedicated to the mind, body, and spirit. Whelan, a principal dancer at New York City Ballet for more than 20 years, is now the company’s associate artistic director. Called “the epitome of the contemporary ballerina, taking ballet into the future,” she worked with Jerome Robbins and originated roles in many NYCB ballets, notably with Christopher Wheeldon, who created 13 roles for her before enlisting her as a guest artist for his Morphoses/The Wheeldon Company. Mikhail Baryshnikov has called her simply “the best” and described her artistry as “a complexity, a sense of internal life, a woman on stage. You’re always trying to decode this person when she moves.”
