About the event

Join Franklin Method Faculty Shannon Murphy for 45 hours of Franklin Method training this summer begining in July 2021.

If you are interested in expanding your pedagogy and deepening your own embodiment this module is for you! Franklin Method's student center approach moves anatomy and kinesiology into an experience increasing your level of embodied function. You'll be certified to teach the well-known workshop "The Art of the Pié" which has been taught at the Aliey School, American Dance Festival, The Julliard School, Royal Danish Ballet, and University of the Arts to name a few.
