    Class Description




    When gut, heart, and brain are trusted, a dialogue forms between conscious and intuitive physicality. The tension between abstraction and narrative - form and content - adds context to this dialogue. Class physically and mentally prepares dancers and/or actors to contribute to this conversation whether they produce their own work or interpret the work of others. Warm-up begins with meditative form and graduates to rigorous alignment. Blood pumping continues with improvisation techniques and games; both known and unknown. Class finishes with phrase work and related improvisations.
