    Class Description



    Movement Philosophy -- In this class we will use improvisation, partnering, floor work and meditation practices to exercise the most efficient and alive versions of ourselves. Through acute specificity and focus we will find freedom and cultivate power inside our body. We will exercise choice and free will, playfully practicing the law of causation. We will understand that dance practice and life practice are one in the same, and how our time in the studio is preparation for the moment we leave.
