About the class:
CONTEMPORARY MODERN TECHNIQUE – Using principles of weight, momentum, and energetic connection into space, we will explore movement that is virtuosic and complex. Influences of classical technique are fused with contemporary and improvisational movement practices while we explore floorwork, inversions, weight shifting, and partnering. This class will dynamically move between solo explorations and set energetic phrase work. Participants are encouraged to investigate their own decision making process in interpreting, executing, and ultimately transforming the movement material.
