WHAT: This summer, I am merging the traditional modern dance class and the modern dance technique playshop into one epic adventure into all things modern dance. That means that there will be a gentle, full bodied, follow along warm up that repeats each week, some juicy conceptual improvisations where you can play with your own expression and technique, and some meaty dance phrases where we’ll try new moves to good tunes.

We will think conceptually about things like:
*GROUNDEDNESS: through tactile, supple feet; gradations of the plié and relevé; feet skimming the floor; the level and orientation of our pelvises
*DYNAMICS: through accelerations and decelerations and the release of weight
*LEVELS: through the technical pathways of moving in and out of the floor, looking at our bases of support, yielding/folding movements, and gathering/radiating energy.

COST:
$12/class for at least 4 classes
(ie $48/4 classes, $60/5 classes, $72/6 classes, $84/7 classes)
$17/class for Drop-In
*Please pay for a series of classes or a single class by cash or check at the door. Thank you!

**Toni Craige is subbing on July 3. Yay!
