Page Background




These classes are contemporary and

release-based in approach. Dancers

begin with floor work to find a

relationship with gravity, breath support,

core support and body connectivity.

Students then move through space

focusing on the use of the spine and the

carving of 3-dimensional space. Each

class ends with expressive movement

sequences that travel through space.

Individuality, expressivity, and movement

invention through structured improvisation

is also explored in a supportive

environment to live accompaniment.


For those with little or no modern

dance experience.

Dance Creation Class

The focus is on the creative process,

building a dance together. The first part

begins with a focused warmup. From

there, students work together within a

creative process to create a dance. An

interdisciplinary approach to dance may

be explored in this open level class for

adult dancers with some previous dance

experience. Instructors rotate from session

to session and there may be opportunities

to perform during the year within a

studio showing.
