    Class Description:

    IWarm up is designed to thoroughly heat and prepare the body through yogic, improvisation, and set exercises. I want to push boundaries in our creative movement choices through exploration of both liquid and staccato movement. With a given phrase, dancers are encouraged to discover their own choices within set movement. Class is a time to be unafraid and unapologetic, to help find oneself and inspiration in individual movement decisions. I have always found movement to be highly emotional, and class is a time to communicate how we feel, or perhaps, to better understand ourselves. Class is a time to remember why we love and must dance.
