We will explore the balance between investigating individual practices and simultaneously strive to uncover what it means to be a community of expansive, empathetic bodies in space, listening, shifting and relating together. There will be exercises and improvisations, phrasework and play, structure and freedom. We will strengthen, stabilize, count and examine, but we'll also move within generosity, groundedness, giggle and groove. This class is for you to get and give what you need. Open Contemporary and Jazz Classes: All classes are welcome to adult movers (ages 16+) of any level. Dive into the exploration of individual movement expression through guided improvisation, technique, and choreography. Focusing on an emphasis on whole body awareness, grounding, suspension, opposition, and weight; we will explore the body’s physicality using floorwork, across-the-floor and center exercises.
