Class description

Angela Feger’s research comes from a wide variety of training in America and later in Europe, where she is currently
based. Ideas of falling, twisting, and diving are all incorporated as the class builds from the ground up and moves with
high velocity through space once standing. The momentum from one movement naturally brings the dancer to the
next, paralleling the body’s constant force which is propelled forward throughout life- all set to a groovy playlist. The
class has developed from Graham, Limon, and Cunningham’s classical ideas and translated into contemporary
ideologies, using phrase work and improvisational tasks in its structure.
