My classes begin with a thorough warm-up to ground and drop dancers into a unified presence and synchronicity with their anatomy. My goal is to open up and prime areas of the body and mind that might be resistant or closed. This is done through a combination of specific stretching/strengthening exercises that are influenced by my yoga teaching background, as well as improvisational tasks. This naturally moves into more specific and refined phrasework that focuses on quick direction changes, clean transfers of weight/footwork, classical technique, and the manipulation of gravity. All of this while leaving room for emotional and personal expression.
