This class will begin on the floor, grounding us in breath and the body’s fundamental movements. We’ll use a combination of improvisation and set material to generate warmth and teach our bodies to partner the ground with ease and fluidity. Once standing, we’ll focus on blending flowing and counter-intuitive articulations of the limbs and spine, along the way building a dynamic relationship to balance and challenging our qualitative range. We’ll seek to access movement through sensation, imagery, and intention, and to tap into that instinctual musicality called “groove.” This class will end with a phrase for the dancer in you that is hungry for the sensuousness of spirals, knows how to “work it,” and likes to eat space alive.
