Class Description: Angie’s contemporary modern class will begin with a yoga inspired warm up, starting to slowly get the body internally heated. Then transitioning from stretching and strength to some improvisation to get us moving and into some across the floor progressions. Phrase work will then focus on technique, using momentum, different efforts and pulling from many disciplines of dance including, modern, ballet, contemporary, and hip hop to create quirky and dynamic phrase work. All levels and backgrounds are welcome, the goal of every class is to have a good time, sweat, and be inspired by everyone in the room.
