A.I.M – Kyle Abraham
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 30
10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Classes taught by A.I.M emphasize four of the company’s core movement values: exploration, musicality, abandonment, and intuition. The opening warm up sequence focuses on the fluidity of the spine, articulation, and core body strengthening; and then builds up to challenging, creative and invigorating phrase work. Students experience a personalized postmodern movement vocabulary full of intricate gestures and signature A.I.M moves.
Attend A.I.M. (9/30), John Jasperse Projects (10/4), and Donna Uchizono Company (10/12) and get all three classes for $50.
