Based in the Humphrey-Limón tradition, this energetic contemporary dance class provides a natural approach to movement with an emphasis on body alignment, physical clarity, and movement initiation. Each class begins with a warm-up that focuses on skeletal connectivity as a tool for movement initiation and phrasing. Blending classical vocabulary and modern technique, students learn to expand on ideas of spatial awareness, rhythm and timing, and sequential movement. Class material builds in momentum and ends by using phrase work to propel through the space changing directions, levels, and timings. This class encourages students to go beyond their physical centers and experience more freedom and daring in their dancing. Leave class feeling sweaty, organized, and inspired.
