Physiological training from a dance perspective, aiming to harness and refine an all-round availability for a multitude of movement potentials. The class embarks upon a sustained development of physically intense movement patterns and sequences that start on the floor and gradually build to upright locomotion and eventually explosive jumps and inversions.
