How do we learn? Alyssa Mitchel draws upon her background in education as she explores that question in an hour-length dance production, The Classroom. Each section of the work examines a particular element of the learning process. Mitchel integrates the recorded interview responses of twenty-six students, teachers and professors from Live Oak School, Sandhill School, Laurel Dell Elementary School and the Dominican University of California, as well as the written reflections of four high school students from the Urban School of San Francisco. The work features seven dancers: Jessica Bozzo, Jessica DeFranco, Sierra Heller, Tayler Kinner, Nicole Maimon, Katherine Neumann and Frankie Lee Peterson III. The creative team includes lighting designer, Daniel Weiermann, Chicago-based jazz composer Jacob Fisher and videographer Mark McBeth.

The Classroom is made possible by the generous support of the Lighting Artists in Dance Grant (a program of Dancers' Group), the ODC Pilot Program (70 and 71), LEVYsalon and many generous individual donors.
