Marilyn Marloff is no stranger to Chautauqua Institution, having spent many summers studying dance under the instruction of Chautauqua Dance artistic director Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux.

However, today is a first for the associate professor and chief adviser for the dance program at Old Dominion University. Marloff will present “The Art of Tap Dancing,” her first lecture on the Institution grounds, at 3:30 p.m. today in Smith Wilkes Hall.

The program kicks off the 2013 season for Chautauqua Dance Circle, a community group that supports the work of the Institution’s summer dance program through public programming and scholarships for talented young dancers from across the nation.
