    Class Description



    Class begins with a somatic and imagery-filled warm up emphasizing initiation points, texture and organic sensation in relationship to gravity. Through visceral and cognitive entry points, dancers are seamlessly led into momentum-driven sequences that challenge stability and mine dynamic possibility while maintaining connection to form and structure. Accent, gesture and acute attention to detail are layered to hone each dancers’ unique voice and stylistic palette. Phrasework incorporates fall and recovery, spatial patterning, intricate floor work and rigor with strong emphasis on focus, choice-making and musical awareness.
