Dance and Tai Ji in Tribeca
Moving Visions Dance, formerly Murray Street Dance, was founded by Loretta Thomas who has created Modern Ballet, a new approach to dance education. Inspired by the ideas of the great dance innovator Isadora Duncan, our classes combine Ballet with contemporary dance information including Merce Cunningham and Duncan techniques and following Duncan’s vision that it is not necessary to change the body to meet a certain image of dance. She took dance back to a more natural form to which we have added the current knowledge of technique, taking her once revolutionary ideas and updating them for the dancers of our time.
Our instructors, who have studied everything from Ballet and Modern to folk dance and Chinese healing forms and martial arts, infuse the Duncan tradition with a strong technical approach and an understanding of movement based on the natural structure of the body.
