This beginning level modern class will be centered around finding breath and weight to release tension, encouraging dancers to move more efficiently. We will explore these ideas alongside technical concepts such as head-tail connection and proper pelvis and foot alignment. In the final combination, students will be asked to explore their own personal narratives and push their artistry while utilizing the technical concepts presented in the class.
