Class description

This class is a guided improvisation class followed by choreography/ phrase work. The class begins with a focus on strengthening the body and mind through an improvisation-based warmup, with an emphasis on giving joy and sensation through movements and the language of dance. Moving and movement in the present. Focusing on not only creation-based improvisation but also on connecting to yourself and your body.
After connecting and igniting our instincts and artistry, we tap into layered tasks that happen in many dispositions. Visiting your skills, lines, and groove. The final portion of the class includes a choreographed phrase. The choreography serves as an anchor for the dancers to apply all the different tasks, textures, skills, and multitasking that we practiced in the first half of the class. You will discover a gradual awakening of your pure movement instincts through the language of dance. The aim of this class is to give joy to your body, dig deeper into your creativity, challenging yourself, and enjoying to dance.
