Class Description: 
This is an advanced contemporary modern movement class with somatic roots. Class begins with a Bartenieff and Alexander Technique informed floor warm up, exploring weight shift, space, and internal and external consciousness to bring the dancer into a somatically aware state of readiness. Class then offers movement varying from expansive and sweeping to intricate and quirky, technical elements, complexity of floor pattern/direction change/level, inversions, and floor work in each class. Phrases are a blend of LĂ­mon and Release based with a strong technical through-line, utilizes weight of the body, uses the spine and awareness of the head-tail connection throughout, and relies heavily on the use of spirals through the kinesthetic sphere of movement. This class is geared toward the advanced dancer, those pursuing dance as a profession, and dancers looking for a full-bodied, get-your-blood-pumping, feel-good but also challenged class! Class is accompanied by drummer, Amy Shelley!
