    Class Description
    This class uses the principles of the Humphrey-Limon technique to approach the mechanics of contemporary movement. Working with fall-recovery, suspension and succession, the focus of the class is on using gravity and opposition to expand the range of dynamics. With these skills, we investigate rhythm, momentum and movement definition. Using a clear alignment, the goal of this class is to create an environment where the dancer finds a way to move through space with sense of weight and freedom.
