Paul Taylor Dance Company member Annmaria Mazzini led a dance master class in Straus Dance Studio, introducing campus and community participants to Paul Taylor's movement vocabulary. Mazzini instructed the class to "find the joy and expressiveness in the present moment. Find it through your breath, imbue it with a tension and with love. Have the idea of connecting with the earth, with your whole body, and with your spirit." PTDC dancer Robert Kleinendorst provided accompaniment on percussion. Photos by Sara Owen
