This class will encourage a sense of fun and creative risk taking that will encompass full body phrase- work, movements in and out of the floor, and musicality. Incorporating a free flowing movement vocabulary, basic ballet vernacular, and post modern dance concepts, the class encourages you to further the development of your physicality and artistry. Warm up will aim to both condition the body as well as build class cohesion and collaboration. The aim is to improve your understanding and execution of dance technique, encourage your own exploration of the art form and emphasize the strengthening your personal movement style in a safe, non judgmental environment.
