    Biography:

    Wesley Ensminger, originally from Santa Cruz, CA, holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Dance Performance and Choreography from California Institute of the Arts. He has collaborated with a vast range of professional companies and choreographers as a performing artist and has taught, performed and choreographed throughout the United States, Canada and Europe. His own choreographic work has been presented at The Gibney Dance Theater NYC, The Dance Teacher Summit, The Joffrey Ballet School, The Roy and Edna Disney Lund Theater LA and at various venues around New York City. He is currently on faculty at the Joffrey Ballet School in NYC where he teaches Contemporary/Modern Technique and Composition and is a guest teacher at multiple studios all over the US.

    Class Description:




    Wesley Ensminger's class is an eclectic and full bodied experience that focuses on applying the roots and ideals of Release Technique to find a healthy ease throughout the body as well as the ability to attack movement. This class utilizes the floor as a partner instead of just a surface, explores oppositional directions to help discover length and stability and delves into the relationship between strength and effortlessness. Through various set exercises starting from the ground up that are built to warm up the body and the mind, as well as an open ended and adaptable process of creating phrase-work together as a group, each dancer will test their boundaries and research their own individual and authentic voice as a mover.
