Sitting in on a rehearsal with new Harvard Dance Program lecturer Mario A. Zambrano, the only thing more striking than his expertise is the easy rapport he has with his students. Zambrano is a former member of Batsheva Dance Company and a published novelist. He’s also danced with Ballet Frankfurt, Nederlands Dans Theater, and Hubbard Street Dance Chicago. An award-winning artist, Zambrano teaches two new for-credit courses this semester, “Deconstructing a Novel into Dance,” and “GAGA: Movement Language Created by Ohad Naharin.” The Crimson sat down with him to learn about his career and new role at Harvard.

Hendricks framed his presentation around the stories that defined his art.
