Lester Horton Modern Dance
Ms. Terri Jo studied the Lester Horton Modern Dance Technique directly from James Truitte, a founding member of the Lester Horton Performing Group. She prides herself in teaching it in its truest form, exactly as it was taught to her in order to keep the technique pure. The technique balances strength with flexibility. It utilizes a variety of musical phrasing, counts and accents. The technique is known for developing long thigh muscles and flexible lower backs. It challenges the body to move in all directions. Ms. Terri Jo wrote her MA thesis on the Lester Horton Modern Dance Technique and choreographed her final piece showcasing this technique.
