Begins On-Going Teaching
@STEPS ON BROADWAY
Highland Park, New Jersey --- 10 Hairy Legs, the male repertory dance company will teach Int/Adv Contemporary Classes at STEPS on Broadway every Friday beginning January 18 from 3:00 – 4:30 pm.
Class begins with dynamic floor sequences that warm up the body’s core, using the floor as a tool to explore connectivity throughout the entire body. The floor sequences build on one another, bringing the mover to standing phrases across the floor. Once on two feet the class establishes the body’s connection with dynamic shifts in and out of the ground, culminating in a final phrase that builds upon the body’s exploration of different initiations with supple and expressive virtuosity. Phrase work from our extensive repertory of commissioned and curated work will be explored.
