Gibney, a New York-based dance company, will take up a four-day residency with dancers at Fort Worth ISD’s Arlington Heights High School, January 9-12.
Amy Miller, a senior company director at Gibney, will conduct master classes and two choreography workshops with Heights dancers during her visit.
“This is an enormous deal to have such an amazing company come work with our dancers,” said Rachel Wade, AHHS dance department director. “While here, Amy Miler will be working with our dancers in their technique classes, as well as providing two choreography workshops with the company dancers.
