4:15-4:45 Guest Presenter – James Sewell, Artistic Director, James Sewell Ballet (Minneapolis) 

Jimmy will lead his trademarked COORDI-BALLET class. No ballet experience needed as this class is for everyone! He’ll share more about his inspiration for creating it during his session. JOIN US! MOVE! DANCE!

What is Coordi™? It’s a movement study based on multiple kinetic patterns happening at once. Physical brain teasers combined with ballet for unexpected pathways and alignments that challenge both your mind and body!

More about Jimmy: A Minneapolis native, Mr. Sewell moved to New York and studied at the School of American Ballet with David Howard, and began performing with ABT II. He was a lead dancer with Feld Ballets/NY for six years and has performed as a guest artist with the New York City Ballet, Zvi Gottheiner and Dancers, and Denishawn. He has choreographed more than 100 ballets for companies in the United States and around the world, and collaborated with countless other artists across disciplines.

Mr. Sewell received a Bush Foundation Artist Fellowship (2002), a Choo-San Goh Award for Choreography from the Choo-San Goh & H.
