Class description

This series of 7 classes is building a well-rounded understanding of contemporary dance choreography. Dialogue between teacher and student will be at the forefront – making for an open, communicative and engaging experience. Classes will always begin with a warm up intended to refine alignment, flexibility, strength and breath. Exercises will introduce foundational classical positions and movements for safe weight transferring. Some task-based improvisation will be used to connect to personal expression and expand movement range. All classes will culminate toward a piece of rhythmic choreography that is both challenging and enjoyable.
