Maitlin’s class will focus on the use of our body’s natural rhythms and musicality while working on moving with intention and authenticity. Class begins with a warm-up of stretching, strengthening, and breathing. Then moves through different improvisational works and choreography.
Warm-up: set the tone/intention for the class and our movement, stretch and strength warm up.
Basic Exercises: Exercises in the center emphasizing isolations, use of weight, suspension and opposition. Across the floor work focusing on musicality, weight, and self expression.
Improvisation work finding different accents and textures.
Choreography: phrase work to exemplify different qualities worked on throughout class and to show individuality within the work.
Cool down, focusing on centering ourselves and reflection of work.
