BALLET FOR CONTEMPORARY DANCERS
Mondays & Wednesdays
This ballet class is designed for contemporary movers. Principles of release, spiral, suspension, and weight are all explored in the classical ballet form to prepare contemporary dancers for contemporary choreography.
CONTEMPORARY TECHNIQUE + IMPROVISATION
Tuesdays & Thursdays
Inspired by Banning Bouldin's contemporary technique class and William Forsythe's Improvisation Technologies, this advanced contemporary dance class is designed to build a healthy balance of strength and flexibility in the lower body, while increasing overall stability and exploring a full range of motion in the upper body.
Technique exercises and phrase work are accompanied by improvisation tasks designed to stimulate our imaginations and open new movement possibilities through prompts using line, form, texture, and color.
