Set and Reset*
Starting with a technique class, we warm the joints, activate the body's energies, and find our center line. We hone various qualities of movement through floor and standing exercises, exploring carving, release, momentum and suspension; and close technique class with learning a dance phrase. During the third hour of the workshop, we'll take up interactive choreography exercises, investigating ways to set and manipulate dance phrases.
