Class Description: THE SENSING BODY (Modern/Contemporary)
This class will explore movement centered in Modern and Contemporary Dance techniques such as floorwork, quadruped movement and momentum-driven pathways. Dancers will ground the body using strong weighted movements and progress into large, fully embodied expressions using imagery and qualitative language to enhance the mind and body sensation. Guided explorations, choreographed phrase work and a variety of music will be utilized to create a movement experience where dancers are left feeling the liveliness of their body and spirit.
Events may be viewed in these formats: list, week, day, map, photo and month.
