The emphasis of the class is to explore the fullness of movement in relation to quality, isolation and speed through the utilization of natural rhythm and momentum. The class blends classical modern techniques with contemporary aesthetics through guided improvisation, movement exploration and phrase work. Ultimately I invite the participants to make their own choices within the movement and to approach each step with clarity and confidence.
