Event Description

Grounded in classical techniques, this class will emphasize alignment
and placement, flow and efficiency, clarity and precision. Utilizing
both fundamental combinations to establish stability and technical
integrity and exciting space covering phrases to create, maintain
and control momentum. The class is designed to strengthen and
fine tune your technique. The class seamlessly integrates a variety
of techniques and modalities to give a satisfying full-body workout.
The class will begin with locomotion and individual improvisations
to attune the participants to their bodies, their breath, the space,
and each other, then move to floor and seated exercises to develop
core, back, and hip strength. Standing up, the class will progress to
standing exercises to work on and explore stability through the use of
external rotation, plies, curves, leg extensions, and weight transfer.
From there the class will step, turn, jump, and fall, working for space
eating steps, sweeping leg extensions, turn-on-a-dime direction
changes, precise footwork, and buoyant, floating jumps. Come and
enjoy this opportunity to fine-tune your technique in an environment
that promises to be fun and challenging at the same time. $18 Pre-registration required.
