"I learned so many things from your beautiful performance. I learned that it takes more than just a talent to be like you. You showed it so beautifully and I felt every movement." --Student, 1988


Miss Zall has developed these workshops during her many years of teaching.  Drawing on a number of arenas, workshops may be of interest to Dance majors, Theater majors, and students of Women’s Studies. Each workshop can be tailored to your needs. All works created in workshops may be used for future performance opportunities.

Miss Zall’s primary motivator is not only to teach the Graham technique, but to encourage her students to make the performance of the work their own, using the technique as a vocabulary for choreography.

Characterization Workshop

Miss Zall will guide students through the creation of a character in dance drama, and creating a character from a literary source.
