Intro to Contemporary:
This class focuses on developing body awareness and feelings of embodiment using a slow and gentle approach that emphasizes sensation, imagination, and listening inside the body. We explore a variety of movement concepts sourced from multiple techniques from the instructor's training with an aim toward increasing the student's ease of movement, their release into gravity, and their embodied imagination. This class is appropriate for beginners or anyone who likes to go slow.
Building on concepts studied in intro to contemporary this class runs at a slightly faster pace, beginning to string together various movements and working with more complex mechanics. Focus will be put on bringing sensation and imagination into movement and more dynamic body patterns. This class is appropriate for those who feel comfortable with the material presented in intro to contemporary as well as anyone with a physical practice in another transferrable form such as yoga, martial arts, circus, etc.
This class will run through the basics of tap with a focus on rhythm and musicality. It is appropriate for beginners looking to work hard and returning students looking to continue to learn. This class is open to teens and adults alike.
