Class Description

A highly physical movement experience designed for the fearless dancer, this workshop will encompass a full body exploration of many diverse movement vernaculars, which includes classical ballet, contemporary dance vocabularies, as well as poly-rhythmic movement concepts that push across the space. The instructor’s goal is to create an exciting full bodied dance experience, while promoting an in-depth understanding of movement and performance. Workshop participants should be ready to dive in and explore various movement ideas that will call for them to dance with freedom and exuberance.
