MODERN CLASS DESCRIPTION:
Class begins with a brief quieting of the mind to connect the physical and mental bodies and to draw attention to weightedness within the skeletal system. A follow-along, accumulative warm-up allows dancers to flow through the first stages of class and get settled into one’s dancing body. Comprised of floorwork, release technique fundamentals, stretching, improvisation and precise technical elements, the warm-up prepares each dancer for fuller-body movement exploration. Center work combinations expand upon moving intentionally and clearly through the space, while continuing to dance from an honest, weighted place. Phrase work at the end of class ranges from articulate and gestural to highly physical and technical, often times mixed with a dash of dance-theatre quirkiness. Students are encouraged to explore their own artistic voice and individual interpretation of the choreography is always welcome.
