Visiting Professor

2017 Visiting professor: Lecturer at the Department of Theatre, Michigan State University, USA, 12th March to 25th March, on the theory and practice of Ancient Dramatic Chorus, to the Classical acting students (for undergraduates 16 hours and for graduates 12 hours). Most important, I had to put that theory into practice with final presentations of the work she had done with our students. I also taught the Musical Theatre undergraduate course (for 4 hours) on the theme “Variations on Dance Stylistic Features According to Different Styles of Music.” including final presentation of the practical work. I also taught improvisation and choreography to the dance minor undergraduates (for 4 hours). In all interactions with our faculty across undergraduate, graduate and in theatre, dance and musical theatre courses everyone was highly complementary of the work and knowledge she shared. I gave a Master class within a community dance organization named Happendance (including observers from their professional company). This was a free opportunity to the community, on “Elements of Improvisation based on Laban Principles” to create a duet with dancers of various ages and levels of expertise.
