Dance Your Frame - Contemporary Technique

Class focuses on exercises to support alignment and strengthening, as we awaken the feet, spine, center and pelvis. Culminating in rhythmical, full-bodied across the floor movement combinations that incorporate the use of turns, jumps, working in and out of the floor, detailed gestures, and diverse dynamics.


In this workshop, participants will explore movement and expression through spontaneous, creative movement. Through guided exercises and prompts, participants will learn to trust their instincts, take risks, and explore new ways of moving their bodies. 


This class is a non-impact, focused routine, giving students a greater kinesthetic awareness, full-body workout while focusing on alignment, posture, and accessing the deeper, functional core muscles.

Skimming the Surface

Participants will explore a movement healing technique that focuses on Skimming the Surface of physical and emotional tension. Through gentle movements and mindful awareness, participants will learn to release stress, tension, and stagnant energy from their bodies. This workshop offers a safe and nurturing space for participants to connect with their bodies, release blockages, and cultivate a sense of ease and balance.
