Pilobolus puts on a clinic for local dancers
Dancers from the Edmonds-based Barclay Shelton Dance Center experienced a special treat Saturday: a two-hour “master class” from three members of the award-winning dance troupe Pilobolus. The Connecticut-based troupe, known for “its imaginative and athletic exploration of creative collaboration,” was in Edmonds Saturday for a sold-out Saturday night performance at the Edmonds Center for the Arts.
Troupe members Shawn Ahern, Benjamin Colter and Nile Russell took time out prior to the performance to work with the Barclay Shelton dancers, ranging in age from 14-30 and mostly from Edmonds and Shoreline. Barclay Shelton director Leanne Shelton was thrilled with the experience. “It’s such a good opportunity for us,” she said.
