"The work we did with the visiting artists provided many exercises to use with any age. The fact that we put them to use together and truly embodied them was powerful."
(Alana Phinney, Independent Teaching Artist)

MOMIX's dancer-illusionists are known internationally for presenting spectacular works of physical beauty. In this teacher workshop, the architects of this celebrated company—Founder Moses Pendleton and Associate Director Cynthia Quinn—guide teachers through movement exercises, engage in a Q&A discussion, and impart strategies to bring beauty, magic, fun, and inventiveness into the classroom. Tapping into MOMIX’s unique artistry, teachers will learn how to explode students' sense of the possible. While at the Flynn MOMIX will perform Sunday at 7 pm and two student matinees on Monday at 9:30 am & 12 pm.

Moses Pendleton (co-founder) has been one of America's most innovative and widely performed choreographers for almost 50 years. A co-founder of the ground-breaking Pilobolus in 1971, he formed his own company, MOMIX, in 1980, which rapidly established an international reputation for inventive and illusionistic choreography. Mr. Pendleton has also worked extensively in film, TV, and opera, and as a choreographer for ballet companies and special events, including two Winter Olympics. He grew up on a dairy farm in Vermont, received his BA in English literature from Dartmouth College in 1971, and was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts by the University of the Arts in Philadelphia in 2015. Listen to 2017 interview with Mr. Pendleton on VPR's Vermont Edition.

Cynthia Quinn (associate director) began performing with MOMIX in 1983. In addition to appearing in numerous television programs, music videos, and films with the company, she has also worked collaboratively with Mr. Pendleton to create choreography for the Ballet Nancy in France, the Berlin Opera Ballet, the Zurich-Volksbuhne Theatre, and the Munich State Opera, among many other institutions Ms. Quinn has also performed on Broadway and throughout the world as a member of the modern dance company Pilobolus. She grew up in Southern California and attended the University of California at Riverside, continuing on for five years after graduating as an associate in dance.
