    Class Description



    Jacquelyn's class challenges each dancer to approach their movement with sensitivity and awareness. Her warm-up invigorates the body through alignment exercises, stability and strength training, and the use of weight shifting in order to prepare physically and mentally for center work. Through task oriented improv, Jacquelyn encourages the exploration and release of patterns of habit. Her movement phrases then push the dancer to confront their athleticism, develop a relationship with musical choices, and expand their artistry. Check out Jackie Nowicki on YouTube.
