Modern and Contemporary Technique
Sundays @ 12:45pm
Explore modern dance elements, such as contraction and release, fall and recovery, initiation points and kinetic chains through the body, and use of the spine in movement. This class typically starts on the floor with Laban/Bartenieff-based exercises and gradually builds to standing and moving across the floor. Ages 11+. All experience levels welcome. Layers are recommended.
Dance Partnering Skills
Fridays @ 12pm
This class will explore different strategies and partnering techniques rooted in gender-neutral non-traditional partnering and contact improvisation. Participants will learn to use their body weight and skeletal structure strategically to sustain and build lifts, weight sharing movements, and partnering combinations. Ages 11+. All experience levels, body types, genders, etc. welcome!
Flexibility, Strengthening, and Body Work
Sundays @ 6:15pm
This class places an emphasis on fitness, wellness, and healing for all bodies, but especially catered to the dancing body. Exercises will emphasize proper alignment while strengthening and stretching to create balance throughout the body, as well as various massage and muscular release exercises to reduce tension and fatigue.
Fridays @ 1pm
Much like actors can improvise a scene together, so can dancers collectively improvise a dance that looks choreographed right on the spot! This class places an emphasis on group compositional improvisation. Through games, activities, and scores, we'll learn strategies for connecting as an ensemble, building and structuring dance extemporaneously, and treating improvisation as performance. Ages 11+. All experience levels welcome!
