    Class Description:



    In class we will research the use of momentum, weight, and successive articulation of our bodies into and out of the floor. We will give value to our differences as catalyst for clarity and deeper understanding of the movement, both physically and theoretically. With a strong emphasis on initiation and release we will work together, through practice and discussion, to build a communal understanding of how the movement is applicable to every body. In the final portion of class we will exercise our responsibility to be perceptive decision makers. We will use our understanding of the movement accumulated throughout class as a vehicle to put into practice our awareness and ability to respond to what is happening around us.
