Incubator Series - zoe | juniper
zoe | juniper
zoe | juniper classes utilize a somatic approach to technique. Classes are physically rigorous, deep, and kinesthetically challenging—a space where product orientated results takes rest and active experience reigns. Dancers will combine musicality, visual and physical metaphors in both improvisation and structured forms as a vehicle to surprise and further each dancers' potential. With the help of Zoe Scofield, students will foster a body that is available, aware and in command of its senses, intuition and physicality.
