About This Course(Online)
This dance course is perfect for anyone who is looking for an advanced improv-based contemporary class. While this may be an advanced course, I will be sure to guide those of you who may be new to this style of moving. I want to encourage all of my students to push pass what they believe limits them.
Online Course description
This dance course is an advanced contemporary for students who are looking for a challenge. In this class, we will start with a basic warm-up to get our bodies prepared for vigorous movements. This warm-up will include a variety of breathing and floorwork execises to help us get into our bodies.
From that warm-up we will float into a guided improv led by my voice. It will be different every time, I want this part of class to feel new and exciting each time. With this level of freedom and curiousity, It will help you build your own voice as a mover. In this space, you are always allowed to make decisions for yourself. Listen to your body and do what it needs.
After warming ourselves up and grooving a bit, I will then teach a contemporary phrase that you will learn and get a chance to workshop. We will play with different modes (solos/duets, doing the phrase as an adagio, retrograding, slow motion/super speed). You are fully allowed to take my choreography and make it your own. Use my phrase as a base, and then explore. I want this to be playful.
This class should be a challenge, and you will sweat..ALOT. My goal is to make you feel all feel comfortable in your own body and to explore all of the different sides of yourself.
