HORTON TECHNIQUE

Adult Horton Technique
Instructor Debra Nunes
Lester Horton's technique does not impose limitaions on how the body should move, it encompasses a varied but distinctive style, it is based on corrective exercises to build strength and is anatomically created to evenly build, stretch and strengthen muscles. His technique was created over 40 years ago.

Ms Nunes learned Horton technique through Naiala Bellenger at Dean College, and continued her training at the Alvin Ailey Dance Center in NYC where she studied with Dudley Williams and Carmen DeLavallade. Her major influence and inspiration came from Ann Marie Forsythe who works closely with Marjorie Perces to preserve and pass on the amazing technique of Lester Horton. Ms'.Forsythe and Perces documented this technique in both video and written format. Ms Nunes writes, "I have been doing the Horton Technique for about 10 years. I enjoy the long clean, clear lines of the shapes and exercises. This technique is accessable to a beginner or no-dancer as well as a professional." Please call 294-6611 for more information.
