    A native of Puerto Rico, Bryan and his family moved to New York City at the age of 8. While living in New York Bryan was exposed to many styles of dance and received his education at La Guardia High school for the Arts. Post graduation, Bryan danced with Complexions contemporary ballet, Netherlands Dance Theater, and most recently, Crystal Pite's Kidd Pivot. Bryan has been part of original creations and performed works by choreographers such as Jiri Kylian, Crystal Pite, Alexander Ekman, Lightfoot/Leon, Johan Inger, Ohad Naharin and many others. Bryan is currently a freelance artist in New York City, exploring the lengths of his artistry through choreographing, collaborating, and educating.

    Class Description:

    The class begins with simple improvisational exercises to articulate the body and built awareness. It explores movement through weight, time, and space. The class then evolves into individual and group tasks which creates a multi dimensional awareness. The latter part of the class is dedicated to phrase work. The students will get an opportunity to use their earlier discoveries on a composition of movements.
