Wednesdays / 8-9:30pm at Velocity

This class encourages having fun and taking risks through full-bodied movement and a supportive community of dancers. Dancers develop strength, stamina, stability, and fluidity through phrasework that includes balancing on one leg, moving into and out of the floor, and jumping. Students are encouraged to think about dynamics and their relationship to space and music. Merging basic ballet vernacular with certain free-flowing, movement vocabulary, this class demonstrates that space itself is a support mechanism that can be utilized to attain particular movement objectives. Each class begins with floor work, plies, and sequences for the legs that prepare the dancers for classically influenced phrasework both on and off their centers. These phrases are compiled into a longer dance phrase at the class’s end, so that dancers can revisit all of the material when they are fully warmed up, and integrate what they’ve learned into a full experience of dancing.
