Lester Horton
The Horton Technique

Lester Horton became a legend in modern dance, developing his own technique and establishing his own dance company. Much of his style and technique is reflected today in leading modern dance company, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.

Horton is largely recognized for developing his modern dance technique, known as the "Horton Technique". It develops the body as an instrument of movement and improves the dancer's physical limitations.

The technique is very interesting to study and works with an energy that is constantly in motion.

Like all styles of dance, the technique is demanding on the mind and the body.

Horton was fascinated by clear shapes and how a dancer can move with these shapes through the space.
