Class Description: This is an eclectic contemporary release technique with a solid base in dance fundamentals. Class begins with a full-bodied floorwork-to-footwork warmup designed to activate our core and connect breath with movement while finding anatomically efficient pathways. Through structured improvisations and set exercises, we will explore dynamics, weight shifts, flow, and the thrill of momentum. Class will finish with a vigorous, high-energy dance phrase. This is a safe environment where we can explore movement, take risks and continue to ask questions.
