This class is designed to increase and enhance the technical and performance abilities of experienced students in the discipline of contemporary dance. Information and exercises for the movement phrases are drawn from a variety of technical and improvisational mechanisms and vocabulary. Through the practice and execution of center floor exercises, traveling patterns and choreographed phrases, the class places emphasis on spatial awareness, proper alignment, increased strength and flexibility, musicality and rhythm. The class focuses on an economical approach to movement by emphasizing the use of the pelvis and spine and addresses the ways one’s inner landscape, mind, and ego affect a movement vocabulary’s overall aesthetic.
