Contemporary

Inspired by her work with Kate Weare and Sleep No More Thryn Saxon’s classes are focused on
freedom of expression, detail, choice making and curiosity. Starting with a somatic based warm
up the class will move into a series of structured improvisations across the floor, followed by a
short center combo to find balance and release and finally finishing up with a large movement
phrase that combines rigor and specificity while incorporating all the elements from class.
Saxon’s classes are inspired by what she’s interested in learning and the concepts currently
being explored in her choreography. At this moment those concepts include, catch and release,
isolation and articulation and gut-initiated movement.
