Joyce Master Class: Lyon Opera Ballet

Four people dancing ballet as partners.
With Jocelyne Mocogni

Intermediate/Advanced Ballet class with Lyon Opera Ballet Mistress Jocelyne Mocogni.

Ballet Mistress Jocelyne Mocogni was awarded the Prix Lausanne in 1974, after graduating from the Roselle Hightower International Dance Center in Cannes, where she studied classical ballet, Graham, and jazz dance. She began her professional dancing career at Tanz Forum Köln from 1974 to 1978 before spending several years in New York in 1978-1983 where she worked with Makarova & Company and Eliot Feld. She joined the Lyon Opera Ballet as a dancer in 1983. Jocelyne has been Ballet Mistress at the Lyon Opera Ballet since 2000.

About Lyon Opera Ballet

Based in Lyon, France, with a bold, vast repertory of work by emerging and established choreographers, the Lyon Opera Ballet is a leading force in contemporary dance. Created in 1969 by Lyon Opera Director Louis Erlo, the present Lyon Opera Ballet was established in 1984 when Mr. Erlo invited Françoise Adret to create a new ballet company committed to contemporary choreographers.

See Lyon Opera Ballet perform at The Joyce Theater March 18-22, 2020.

The “versatile and daring” (New York Times) Lyon Opera Ballet, under the direction of Yorgos Loukos, returns to The Joyce Theater with an inquiry into translation. Movement and musicality interact in distinct ways in Trois Grandes Fugues, a stunning triple bill presenting the work of trailblazing choreographers Maguy Marin, Lucinda Childs, and Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. These women each undertake the musical complexity of Beethoven’s Grosse Fuge in three different choreographic imaginings, performed exquisitely by a striking ensemble of dancers.
