    Class Description:



    Bombastic Post-Downtown
    Class is a super physical sensation-based articulation of form via improvisation, imagination and heavily nuanced set material. Class begins with filtering our formal techniques with an active creative practice that encourages trust and choice-making. We will take ownership of our unique eccentricity, beauty, and darkness. We will cultivate the permission to reveal, explore, and revel in the effort and joy. We will gather to regenerate, discover, challenge, and applaud. We will dance via little physics and loud ways; sweat and move until we cannot.
