Class Description:

I start with an injury safe/sensitive warmup with easy movement focusing on the internal body while progressing into more physical and intricate work. Progressing through an open structure, I try to find a real connection to the floor and space, play with contrasting approaches and allow the dancers to find their own grooves. I utilize all of my experience with classical and contemporary ballet techniques, modern, street and social dance to create loose phrase work as a structure for each dancer to explore their own language within.
