“My class focuses on different ways of approaching movements whilst maximizing on body and space awareness. As artists we have different bodies, as well as individual capabilities. It is my goal to share new tools and create different thought patterns to conquer movements given and allow for new explorations within them. Drawing inspiration from various styles of dance, the class consists of improvisation, floorwork as well as phrase work.”
