In Memoriam - Alan Danielson 1954- 2014
dance by Alan Danielson
  Village Voice quote  
 
 
 
Alan Danielson teaches contemporary technique classes that encourage articulation and versatility, and prepare dancers for the infinite demands of contemporary choreography. With a base in the Humphrey-Limón tradition, his classes focus on musicality as a tool for training the body and enhancing artistry. The work emphasizes phrasing and freedom of movement, achieved through efficiency and a strong technical base.

Alan Danielson has taught professional classes in New York City since 1984. He is a frequent Master Teacher for Dance Festivals, Companies and Conservatories around the world, including Kuopio Festival (Finland), Centro Nacional de las Artes (Mexico), Doris Humphrey Centennial (US), Okinawa Arts Festival (Japan), and Palucca Schule (Germany).
Alan Danielson has been on faculty at New York University and Long Island University, as well as a Visiting Artist at many Universities in the US. He has also teaches Music for Dancers, Teaching Methodology, Choreography, and Dance Accompaniment for Musicians.
