Mount’s Director of Dance hosts free master class

Mount students and alumnae/i are invited to participate in the fourth and final class of the HEARTS’ Master Class Series, hosted by Roberto Villanueva, Director of Dance and Adjunct Instructor at the College of Mount Saint Vincent.

Join Mr. Villanueva for his free master class at the Jeanne Rimsky Theater in Port Washington, N.Y.—housed in Landmark on Main Street—on March 4 at 7 p.m. as he teaches dance vocabulary, patterns, and shapes found in current day hip-hop, pop, and street dance cultures.

Mr. Villanueva is also the Executive Director, Artistic Director, and Founder of BalaSole Dance Company—Mount Saint Vincent’s dance company-in-residence. BalaSole is a multi-genre and all-inclusive dance company solely dedicated to bridging gaps in the field of dance with a cross-pollination of styles.

The class series is sponsored by HEARTS PW, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to add meaningful value to children’s lives and its community by supporting, promoting, and enriching the arts in Port Washington.

Availability for the class is on a first-come, first-served basis; however, all are welcome to observe.

Register for the March 4 master class with Roberto Villanueva.
