Class Description



The class begins with dynamic flooring sequences, using the floor as a tool to explore efficiency and clarity of movement- - warming the body while encouraging a sequential, articulated physicality. The initial phrases then build to seamlessly bring the dancers into standing movements that aim to stabilize and continue the body's connection with the ground. Following is a final phrase that explores the complex coordination between forceful initiations, speed and the retention of a supple and resonant expressivity.
